On the night of February 13, Ukraine’s armed forces reported that Russia launched a drone attack on their territory. According to their report, the thermal power plant in Dnipro was damaged, leaving part of the city without electricity and water. The Ukrainian military shot down 16 out of 23 Shahed drones in Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporizhia, and Kherson regions. The remaining 8 ATSs were not reported.
In the aftermath of the attack, Dnipro was struggling with the damage caused to its thermal power plant and the resulting loss of electricity and water for a section of the city. The Ukrainian military claimed that they had successfully shot down most of the Russian drones, minimizing the damage to targeted regions. However, Mayor Boris Filatov strongly condemned the attack as an act against civilian infrastructure, which Russia has repeatedly denied.
The widespread disruption and damage caused by the attack were evident in reports from various sources. Despite efforts by Ukrainian forces to intercept most of the drones, some areas were severely affected by this aggression towards civilian infrastructure. The evidence is clear that Russian military attacked civilian infrastructure in Ukraine despite denial from their side consistently.
