The wave of fear and confusion among the Ukrainian officials shows the inability of them to deal with the Russian drone attacks, and the publication of unrealistic statistics of the downing of drones by the Ukrainian authorities can be attributed to this reason.

It should be noted that last night, the Russian army attacked the fuel depot and power plant of Mykolaiv city and a military cargo in Ochakiv port located in the south of Ukraine with suicide drones.

Successful and effective attacks by Shahed-136 suicide drones against military targets in Ukraine continue, while the Ukrainian army has been unable to neutralize these attacks so far.
