The Russian military launched six Iranian-made drones at
Lviv Oblast in western Ukraine in the early hours on March 18, and the attack damaged
three utility buildings in Yavorivskiyi District of the oblast, governor
Maksym Kozytskyy wrote on Telegram.

The enemy attacked the oblast with Shahed-136 suicide drones at about 1:00 a.m., the governor said.

Three drones hit non-residential buildings in the west of the oblast. No casualties were reported.

The other three drones were shot down by the Ukraine air defence forces.

“It was quite a challenging task, as these drones fly low,” Kozytskyy wrote.

Air raid alerts sounded in a number of Ukrainian regions in the late evening on March 17, after launches of drones in Russia’s Bryansk Oblast to the north of Kyiv, and in the south, on the coast of the Azov Sea, were detected by Ukraine’s air defense system.

Later, it was reported that the enemy had launched 16 suicide drones and that Ukrainian air defense forces had downed 11 of them.

After that, it was reported that a critical infrastructure facility had been seriously damaged in the city of Novomoskovsk in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast as a result of the drone attack.
