The command of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reports about repelling a record number of kamikaze drone attacks since the beginning of a full-scale war.
On the night of May 28, 2023, “in honor of Kyiv Day,” the enemy launched 54 Iranian Shahed-136/131 attack drones from the north and south. Most of the UAVs were headed for military facilities and critical infrastructure facilities in the central regions of the country, in particular, Kyiv region. In the area of responsibility of the Center Air Command, most of the attack drones have been destroyed!
Also, forces and means of the Air Command South and Air Command West of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and air defense of other components of the Defense Forces of Ukraine were involved in repelling the attack!
As a result of the successful combat work of air defense, the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed 52 of 54 Shahed-136/131! An impressive 96% efficiency.
Unfortunately, falling drone debris damaged houses. There are victims, but there could be many more.
By the way, since 2007, there has been no Air Defense Forces Day in Ukraine, instead a Day of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was established, which is celebrated every year on the first Sunday of August. But now almost every night is Air Defense Night. Thank you!
