New missile attack on Ukraine by Russian barbarians

On the morning of November 17, Russia launched new missile strikes on Ukrainian civilian infrastructure. According to NV, the targets of the Russian barbarians were objects in the capital, as well as in Dnipro, Kyiv, Odesa, Poltava, Kharkiv, and Cherkasy Oblasts.

In addition, Naftogaz reported shelling of gas production infrastructure in eastern Ukraine.

According to the spokesman of the Air Force Command, Yuriy Ihnat, the exact number of missiles fired is currently unknown, but the Russian Federation launched at least 10 missiles from Tu-95 strategic bombers from the Rostov region, as well as from ships in the Black Sea. At the same time, Shahed drones were launched from the northern side, probably from the territory of Belarus and the Kursk region.

Dnipro seems to have been hit the hardest, where Russia hit the Southern Machine-Building Plant, two infrastructure facilities, and residential buildings. As a result of the shelling, 14 civilians were injured, including a 15-year-old girl. Several streets of the city remained without water supply.

Critical infrastructure facilities were hit in Odesa and Kharkiv Oblasts. A logistics facility was also damaged in Odesa, one person was injured. The blast wave damaged the surrounding enterprises. At the same time, OC “South” reports that six missiles were destroyed by air defense forces over the Black Sea.

Kyiv repelled the attack – four missiles and five kamikaze drones were shot down over the capital.

Against the background of massive missile attacks by the enemy, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba in a conversation with the U.S. Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, said that it was time to supply Kyiv with Patriot air defense systems.

“I thanked the U.S. for its crucial defense assistance and emphasized that deliveries of air defense systems to Ukraine need to be sped up. NASAMS have proved their efficiency already. I am also convinced that the time for “Patriots” has come,” he tweeted.
