Russian night attack across Ukraine kills one, injures two, damages oil refinery

On the night of 1 November, the Russian occupiers attacked Ukraine using Shahed-136/131 attack drones and X-59 guided missiles, Ukraine’s Air Force reported.

In total, Ukraine’s air defence shot down 18 out of 20 Shahed-136/131 drones, and an X-59 guided missile. The air raid alarms lasted across Ukraine for more than six hours that night.

According to Yuriy Ihnat, spokesman for the Air Force of Ukraine, the night’s attack was similar to previous ones. However, this time, Russian troops used a much greater number of weapons against the Ukrainians. They attacked in several waves, with the Shahed drones flying in groups and dispersing 1-2 drones to cover as much territory as possible, Ihnat explained in a TV marathon.
