The Russian invaders launched Iranian-made Shahed one-way attack drones at Ukraine from the southern direction (Cape Chauda in temporarily occupied Crimea) in the early hours of Thursday, October 5.

That’s according to the Ukrainian Air Force, Ukrinform reports.

A total of 29 drones were launched, the report reads.

“Twenty-four Shahed-131/136 drones were downed over Odesa, Mykolaiv, and Kirovohrad regions by Ukraine’s Air Force units in cooperation with the air defense forces,” the press service wrote on Telegram.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, Ukrainian drones destroyed Russia’s S-400 Triumf surface-to-air missile launcher near Russia’s Belgorod.
