Russia launches missiles at Kyiv, Odesa, Dnipro, Mykolayiv and Khmelnytskyi regions

Russia continued shelling Ukraine on 11 October. Explosions were heard in the Odesa, Khmelnytskyi, Kyiv, Dnipro and Mykolaiv regions, with local authorities reporting anti-aircraft defence activity and missiles being shot down. Several rockets hit various areas in the five regions, despite the Ukrainian army’s efforts.

Vitaly Kim, head of the Mykolayiv Military Administration, reported on a number of missile launches directed at the area at 10:24 a.m. In total, Kim declared an air alert four times, with more than 10 missiles fired at the region.

“More missiles. Looks like the new commander of the Russian army overplayed ‘Red Alert’ as a kid. He'd have been better off reading books.”

According to the Southern Operational Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU), five Shahed-136 kamikaze drones were destroyed over the Mykolaiv region between 03:30 and 05:30 a.m. on 11 October. On the night of 11 October, Russian missiles fell outside a residential area in Mykolaiv, there were also strikes reported in agricultural areas, with no casualties.

Yesterday, air defence forces destroyed 14 cruise missiles over the region.

Kryvyi Rih in the Dnipro region reported the launch of 10 cruise missiles from the Caspian Sea, as well as 10 cruise missiles from the city of Saratov. The mayor of the city, Oleksandr Vilkul, warned local residents and urged them to stay in shelters. According to Vilkul, Russia fired “Uragan” missiles at the Zelenodolsk community during the night, and destroyed a school gym in the village of Velyka Kostromka. No one was killed as a result of the strikes. Shelling in the Nikopol district damaged a petrol station and a shop, while several houses were destroyed and about 10 were damaged in the Krasnohorivka community. A number of gas pipelines and power cables were also destroyed.

In the morning of 11 October, Vilkul reported that the city was continuing to deal with the aftermath of the missile strike.

“At 04:40 it was possible to resume power supply in the area of block 17. There are 4,319 residents without power supply in the old SevGOK district, work to restore power supply continues. The water supply is 100 percent secure.”

The Vinnytsia Regional Military Administration reported missile strikes, but did not specify the exact location: “There are hits in the Vinnytsia region. All services are working. Take precautions during an air raid!”

Volodymyr Trush, head of the Ternopil Military Administration, wrote that there was a threat of a strike on the region and asked residents to move to shelters. The head of the Khmelnytskyi region, Serhiy Gamaliy, reported that an Iranian Shahed-136 kamikaze drone had been shot down. Gamaliy added that explosions were heard in the region in the morning, and attributed them to the Ukrainian air defence.
