Polish Operational Command detected an unknown object that flew in from Ukrainian territory near the Ukrainian border in the Zamość area of Poland, Operational Command of the Polish Armed Forces reported.

Overnight and on the morning of 29 December, Russia launched the most massive air attack against Ukraine, employing 158 missiles and suicide drones, targeting numerous cities all across the country, Ukraine’s Air Forces reported.
