On Tuesday afternoon, Russian kamikaze drones launched a brazen attack on military targets in the Ukrainian city of Dnepropetrovsk.
The attack has caused a raging fire and a series of explosions, intensifying tensions between Russia and Ukraine and further destabilizing an already volatile region.
The drones were armed with explosives and crashed into their targets, triggering a massive explosion that lit up the sky and sent debris flying in all directions.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing flames shooting up into the air and hearing the sound of the blasts echoing across the city.
Emergency services quickly responded to the scene, but the scale of the damage was severe.
The Ukrainian military confirmed the attack, stating that it was carried out by Russian forces in violation of international law.
In response to the attack, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky condemned the “grave act of aggression” in a statement, promising that it would not go unpunished.
He also called it a clear violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
The attack has come just days after the Russian military moved tens of thousands of troops to the Ukrainian border, sparking fears of an imminent invasion.
Ukraine has accused Russia of massing forces in the region in preparation for an attack, while Moscow has denied any such intentions.
The escalating tensions between Russia and Ukraine have raised concerns in the international community, with many calling for a peaceful resolution to the crisis.
The United States and other Western countries have voiced their support for Ukraine, while Russia’s allies have backed Moscow’s actions.
As of now, the situation in Dnepropetrovsk remains tense, with emergency services working to contain the fire and assess the extent of the damage.
The attack has sent shockwaves across Ukraine and the region, as fears of further violence and instability grow.
