On the night of February 13, the enemy again attacked Ukraine with attack UAVs – 23 drones of the Shahed-136/131 type were launched from the areas of Primorsko-Akhtarsk (Russian Federation), Cape Chauda (Crimea).
“Anti-aircraft missile units, mobile fire groups of the Air Force and the Defense Forces of Ukraine are involved in repelling the air attack. As a result of combat work, 16 enemy attack UAVs were destroyed within the Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions,” – reported the command of the Air Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
One of the main directions of the enemy’s attack is the Dnepropetrovsk region, where the regional center was attacked by four groups of “martyrs” from three directions – south, east and north. The Ukrainian Armed Forces PS also reported a missile towards the Dnieper. There were some hits. Thus, Dneproprovodka warned about the cessation of water supply due to problems with electricity.
DTEK reported that as a result of the shelling, one of the thermal power plants was damaged, where the equipment was seriously damaged. According to preliminary information, there were no casualties.
The station stopped producing electricity; after the shelling stopped, the power engineers began to eliminate the consequences and resume operation of the equipment.
The head of the regional OVA, Sergei Lysak, noted that the enemy was attacking the region for the second night in a row.
“Our defenders destroyed 10 suicide bombers in the Dnieper region. But there were several hits in the Dnieper. An energy facility was under attack. A fire broke out, which was put out by rescuers. The aggressor also hit an infrastructure facility. It caught fire there too. The fire was quickly extinguished,” — he said and added that the power engineers have already returned light to the residents of the Pavlograd region after yesterday’s attacks, and are now working in the regional center, where almost all the houses have been healed.
In general, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, over the past 24 hours the enemy carried out 5 missile and 113 air strikes, and carried out 135 attacks from multiple launch rocket systems on the positions of our troops and populated areas. More than 110 settlements in Chernigov, Sumy, Kharkov, Lugansk, Donetsk, Zaporozhye, Dnepropetrovsk, Kherson and Nikolaev regions came under artillery fire.
