The Russian army launched another attack against Ukrainian infrastructure and industrial facilities on the evening of February 9, using a kamikaze UAV “Shahed-136/131” (Geranium-2/1). This attack caused explosions in several regions, including Kharkov, Kherson, Nikolaev and Odessa. At least seven people were killed in the attack, including three children: a six-month-old baby, as well as children four and seven years old.
Despite their best efforts, the Ukrainian air defense forces were unable to stop the entire attack. However, they did manage to take down 23 out of 32 suicide bombers that were used in the assault. The use of such destructive weapons by Russia is causing severe harm and damage to Ukraine’s infrastructure and facilities.
According to Oleg Sinegubov, head of the Kharkov regional military administration, at least seven people became victims of the Russian attack on Kharkov. The tragic loss of life and widespread destruction caused by these attacks highlights the severity of the conflict that Ukraine is facing. The Ukrainian people are suffering greatly from this ongoing conflict and it is crucial for international leaders to take immediate action to protect them from further harm.
