About 10 Russian attack drones targeted Ukraine in early morning raids

The Russian army attacked Ukraine with ten unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) early Nov. 16, Suspilne reported, citing Ukraine’s Air Force spokesman Yurii Ihnat.

According to Ihnat, that time Russians shifted the time frame for the strikes. As of 8:30 am the air raid alert was still on.

“Whereas the Air Force usually reports on downed drones around this time,” said Yurii Ihnat.

Ihnat also said that air defenses destroyed one X-59 missile at night in Poltava Oblast.

On the morning of 16 Nov, the first deputy head of the Khmelnytsky Regional Military Administration, Serhii Tiurin, said that Ukraine’s air defenses were also activated in the Khmelnytskyi Oblast.

“Residents of Khmelnytsky Oblast could hear explosions. Air defense forces are working,” Tiurin added.


Ukraine’s Air Force has updated the information on the night attacks. During the night of 16 November 2023, Russia launched 18 Shahed drones at Ukraine. Ukraine’s air defenses shot down 16 of the drones.
