A Russian drone and artillery attack in Ukraine resulted in the deaths of at least six people and knocked out power in the southern city of Kherson. The attack included the firing of approximately 50 Shahed drones at Ukrainian targets and shelling a train station where civilians were waiting to catch a train to Kyiv. This assault followed Ukrainian warplanes damaging a Russian ship off Crimea in the Black Sea, with both sides facing challenges in making progress along the front lines of the ongoing 22-month war. The attack on Kherson disrupted daily life by hitting residential areas, a mall, and the power grid, leaving the majority of households without electricity during winter. Additionally, Odesa, another major city in southern Ukraine, experienced casualties due to the drone assault. Ukraine’s air force intercepted a significant portion of the drones launched by Russia, and while Russian forces captured a city in eastern Ukraine, they are unlikely to achieve rapid operational advances from it. Concerns about diminishing weapons supplies from abroad have prompted Ukraine to focus on increasing domestic production, including self-propelled artillery units and long-range strike drones.
