Russian forces launch missile and drone strikes on three Ukrainian regions


An infrastructure facility in Odesa was damaged following a Russian ballistic missile strike, regional Governor Oleh Kiper reported on Telegram on April 20.

The strike on Odesa was part of a larger pattern of attacks using Kh-59 missiles, though earlier attempts had been successfully intercepted.

Air-raid alerts were issued in a number of Ukrainian regions overnight in response to Russian attacks with various weapons, including three Iskander-M ballistic missiles, two S-300/S-400 and two Kh-59/Kh-69 guided missiles, as well as with two Orlan-10 reconnaissance drones, and a Supercam drone launched from Russia’s Belgorod Oblast and the Black Sea.

According to Ukrainian Air Force Commander Mykola Oleshchuk, the drones and both Kh-59/Kh-69 missiles were shot down.

At least two explosions were reported in the city of Sumy and another explosion in Konotop in the northeastern Sumy Oblast.
