Russian drone attack on Ukraine on January 22: what is known

According to representatives of the Ukrainian Air Force, the enemy attacked with eight kamikaze drones of the "Shahed-136/131" type from the Primorsko-Akhtarsk region of the Russian Federation.

All eight "Shaheds" were destroyed by anti-aircraft missile units and mobile fire groups of the Air Force and Defense Forces of Ukraine within Mykolaiv, Kherson, Dnipropetrovsk and Kirovohrad regions. Let's keep the sky! Together to victory! — says the Air Force statement.

Ukrainian drones continue to attack the territory of the Russian Federation

As mentioned earlier, on the night of January 21, drones of the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) attacked the Ust-Luga Oil oil terminal in the Leningrad region.

Recently, it also became known that he had stopped his work,

The Bloomberg news agency officially confirms these data.

This terminal is one of the newest and most important in the Russian Federation. It works for export, but it also supplies fuel for Russian troops. After the SSU attack, all the tankers that were near the terminal went far out to sea. Their download failed, the message says.

This attack by the SSU caused not only significant material but also image damage to the Russian Federation because everyone understood that the collapsed Russian air defence system could not cope even with drones.

Ukrainian soldiers report that the Russian invaders are currently forced to transfer even more air defence installations from the front to protect the rear.

Recently, the spokesman of the Ukrainian Air Force, Yuriy Ignat, stated that the enemy had saturated the occupied Crimea with air defence systems by 200%, leaving the territory of the Russian Federation almost defenceless.
