During the Russian strike on Dnipro, the enemy forces attempted to target the fuel and energy sector, spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force Command, Yurii Ihnat, said on national television on Feb. 13.

“The situation in Dnipro was challenging. Air defense was highly active in this oblast,” he said.

“The facilities targeted by the enemy belong to the fuel and energy sector, which is frequently subjected to attacks. Unfortunately, there were some successful strikes.”

According to Ihnat, frontline regions like Dnipro are more frequently targeted by enemy attacks.

“That’s why the percentage of downed UAVs may be lower; this is not unexpected,” he explained.

On the night of Feb. 13, Russia launched an attack on Ukraine using several groups of kamikaze drones, primarily targeting the city of Dnipro.

An energy facility was struck, resulting in a fire that was subsequently extinguished by rescue teams.

Additionally, an infrastructure facility was hit, causing another fire, but it was quickly put out.

Following the Russian attack in Dnipro, one hospital was evacuated and schools were closed due to damage to infrastructure.

In one hospital, the heating system was shut down, and many palliative care patients were relocated.

The enemy deployed a total of 23 suicide drones, with 16 of them being destroyed.
