At least four blasts were heard tonight in southeastern Ukrainian Dnepropetrovsk oblast and specifically in the regional capital Dnipro, according to Ukrainian officials. The anti-aircraft alert has been activated in these hours in the region and in 10 other Ukrainian oblasts, including that of Kiev.
Explosions were also reported in the capital, with the Kiev military administration reporting that Ukrainian air defenses are at work on the city and surrounding oblast. The mayor of Dnipro, Borys Filatov, did not mention any explosion but asked on Telegram "not to film or publish anything". Ukrainian officials ask residents not to post photos or videos of Russian attacks so as not to reveal sensitive information to the enemy side. According to Ukrainian state media, tonight's anti-aircraft alerts were triggered due to the launch of cruise missiles from Russian territory.
Several explosions were also reported in the Russian-occupied city of Berdiansk in Ukraine's southern Zaporizhzhia oblast. Moscow's forces have recently transferred ammunition to the site of the attack. Kiev inflicted a "massive attack" on the city, according to local pro-Russian officials. Berdiansk has been under occupation by Moscow since February 2022 and is located about 100 kilometers south of the front line.
