The Russians caught Ukrainian air defenses by surprise

On the morning of February 7, an air raid alert was announced across Ukraine. Local authorities and media reported explosions and fires in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Nikolaev, Ivano-Frankivsk, Lviv, Dnipropetrovsk and Cherkasy regions.

Due to the almost simultaneous entry into Ukrainian airspace of missiles from Tu-95, Tu-22M3 and Su-34 aircraft, we had the launch of "Caliber" missiles from the Black Sea and ground installations, as well as the use of UCAVs, which caused great destruction.

Important targets have been hit. For example, in Nikolaev, the Okean factory, where drones and equipment are assembled, as well as ammunition depots, was destroyed. In the Lviv region, training centers, military units in the forest near Borispil airport were hit.

A Russian missile also hit an 18-hour-old building that caught fire in the Ukrainian capital, Mayor Vitali Klitschko said. Six people in the Dyprovsky district were injured, two have been taken to hospital, he added.

Electricity has been cut off in parts of Kyiv on Wednesday after damage was caused to high voltage lines.
