Russian attacks – fires: Ukraine activates nationwide air raid siren


In Ukraine, which was attacked by Russia, a nationwide air raid siren was activated on Saturday night. According to the authorities, several regions have been shelled.

Infrastructure objects were hit in the southern city of Zaporizhzhya, close to the front. There are fires. Governor Olexander Staruch called on the population to go to shelters.

Shortly after 7 a.m. local time (6 a.m. CEST) on Saturday morning, an air raid siren was activated across Ukraine amid fears of further attacks.

50 bullets hit
According to local authorities, five enemy drones of Iranian design were intercepted over the neighboring Dnipropetrovsk region. More than 50 shells from multiple rocket launchers and heavy artillery hit the Nikopol district. Two people were injured.

US put together new security package worth $725 million
The US, meanwhile, will supply $725 million worth of ammunition and military vehicles to Ukraine as part of a new security package. Two US government officials told Reuters on Friday. The military aid should strengthen Ukraine’s counter-offensive capabilities against Russia. Weapons for defense against missile attacks are not included.

The package is the first since Russian rocket attacks on civilian population centers in Ukraine this week. This brings total US defense aid to Ukraine to more than $17.5 billion since the Russian invasion of February 24.
