On the evening of February 9, the Russian army launched a new attack against Ukraine, targeting infrastructure and industrial facilities. The Ukrainian air defense forces were able to shoot down 23 out of 32 suicide bombers used in the attack, but not before at least seven people were killed, including three children.
The use of kamikaze UAV “Shahed-136/131” (Geranium-2/1) by the Russian army highlights the severity of the situation in Ukraine. The explosions that occurred as a result of this attack affected several regions, including Kharkov, Kherson, Nikolaev, and Odessa.
The head of the Kharkov regional military administration, Oleg Sinegubov, reported that at least seven people were killed in the attack on his city alone. Among those who lost their lives were three children: a six-month-old baby and two young children aged four and seven years old.
The continued attacks on Ukrainian infrastructure and facilities are causing severe harm and damage to the country. With so many casualties and widespread damage caused by these attacks, it is clear that the Ukrainian people are suffering greatly from the ongoing conflict.
