Half of UAVs flying towards Kyiv were shot down by anti-aircraft guns and heavy machine guns - Joint Forces commander Naiev
On the night of February 11, a group of Shahed kamikaze attack drones attempted to hit Kyiv. All the enemy UAVs were destroyed as they approached the Ukrainian capital.
Most of the drones were shot down by Ukrainian defenders using anti-aircraft guns and heavy machine guns. This was reported by the commander of the Joint Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Serhii Naiev on Telegram.
The lieutenant general noted that during another repulse of a Shahed-136/131 UAV attack in the Kyiv sector, half of the drones were shot down by mobile fire groups armed with anti-aircraft guns and heavy machine guns.
"The enemy is constantly trying to break through our defense, using all types of weapons. However, the defenders of Ukrainian sky disrupt the enemy's insidious plans every day. I thank the Ukrainian heroes. I believe in everyone," Naiev wrote.
At the same time, the Kyiv Regional Military Administration reported that air defense forces were actively working in the region at night. Thanks to the successful work of mobile fire groups, no hits to residential and critical infrastructure were recorded.
At the same time, they emphasized that a fire broke out on the territory of one of the enterprises as a result of the fall of drone debris. As a result, warehouses, a service station, a hangar, the company's administrative building, a car, and a forklift were damaged.
Rescuers arrived at the scene and extinguished the fire promptly. Fortunately, there were no casualties or injuries among the civilian population. All operational groups continue to record the consequences of the night attack.
