Russian attack that set a petrol station ablaze in Ukraine's second biggest 
city, Kharkiv.

"Overnight the occupiers launched 45 attack drones... As a result of combat 
work, 40 enemy Shahed (UAV) were destroyed," the Ukrainian air force said on 

Falling debris lightly wounded a 39-year-old man in the southern region of 
Dnipro, governor Sergiy Lysak said.

Authorities from the capital Kyiv and the central Cherkasy region said there 
was preliminary no damage.

But aerial guided bombs targeted the village of Vodyane, in the Kharkiv 
region, killing a 56-year-old woman, governor Synegubov said.

The day before, his region had seen seven killed after a Russian drone attack 
hit a petrol station, spilling burning fuel down the neighbouring street.
