On the night of September 17, Russian troops shelled the Pokrovsk commune in the Nikopol Oblast of the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. This was announced by the chairman of the regional council.
Fortunately, there have been no reported casualties or injuries in the wake of the recent events. The situation remains tense as reports indicate that a cruise missile launched by Russia from a Tu-95m aircraft departing from the "Olenia" airport was successfully intercepted and shot down over the region during the night.
The fact that the missile was intercepted serves as a testament to the capabilities of the defense systems in place and the efforts made to protect the region and its inhabitants.
As the situation continues to evolve, the world watches with bated breath, hoping for a peaceful resolution that can avert further escalation and protect innocent lives.
