The enemy fired nine missiles at civilian infrastructure in Kharkiv, the General Staff said.

The Russians launched 10 Shahed kamikaze drones at targets across Ukraine. Nine were intercepted by Ukrainian defenders, one being destroyed by an army air defense unit and eight by the Ukrainian Air Force, using anti-aircraft missile units and jet fighters from the East Air Command.

The Iranian Shahed-136/131 drones entered Ukraine from Russia’s Bryansk Oblast into Chernihiv and Sumy oblasts, according to Air Force Command.

The attack lasted from 9:10 p.m. on March 30 to 1.30 a.m. on March 31.

In addition to the Shaheds, up to five other airborne targets, likely balloons, were spotted in Ukrainian airspace.

Two cars were also damaged as a result of Russian missile strikes on the eastern Ukrainian city, according to regional governor Oleg Synegubov.

The missile attack targeted the Novobavarskyi district of Kharkiv.

An enemy kamikaze drone also hit a critical infrastructure facility in the Izyum district of Kharkiv Oblast. Two civilians were injured.

Previously, the Russian military conducted a mass drone attack against Ukraine during the night of March 27 to 28, when the Defense Forces shot down 14 of 15 enemy kamikaze drones.
