At night, several precise strikes by the Russian military hit targets in different Ukrainian regions. In turn, Ukrainian forces shelled the regions that have recently entered the Russian Federation as well as the Russian border regions.
Russian Geranium-2 UAVs were active over the Ukrainian territories last night. Attacks of the suicide drones were reported in the Kharkov region. According to preliminary data, several UAVs struck a military facility in the Osnovyansky district of the city. Some reports claim that the target was a fuel storage.
Ukrainian sources shared photos of the wreckage of the UAVs after the attack. Eyewitnesses also shared videos confirming that at least two UAVs were heard over the city and the explosions were reported which confirms that the suicide drones reached their target. Fire was also seen in the area.
According to local reports, the Ukrainian air defence forces shot down two Geranium-2 UAVs in the Odessa region. However, several other UAVs reached their target which was the Headquarters of the operational command South in the center of Odessa. The locals also shared videos with explosions in the city. Any footage from the spot is yet to confirm the success of the attack.
The Ukrainian media are sharing photos from the city of Zaporozhie, showing a house reportedly destroyed by Russian missile. According to the Ukrainian side, two civilians were killed. Ukrainian propagandist Gerashchenko shared a photo of a woman which also raised suspicions. The pose of the woman and the colour of her skin suppose that the photo was staged.
So far, it is not clear who was behind the attack, the real number of casualties and what was the real target. Civilian houses are often used by the Ukrainian military. The Ukrainian media are always trying to show military facilities as civilian ones like it was the case in Kremenchug. The Kiev regime has already attempted to blame the Russian side in genocide staging the mass murders in Bucha ans Izyum, killing their civilians in the towns under Ukrainian control like for example in Kramatorsk, and trying to lump the blame on Russia after the Ukrainian missiles hit civilian targets by mistake, for example when air defence rockets fell on the populated areas like it was the case in Odessa. It should not be excluded that the attack was the result of a technical malfunction or a mistake.
The Russian military is yet to comment on the incident.
In their turn, Ukrainian forces attempted to attack the Russian city of Belgorod. In the morning hours, Russian air defense systems intercepted targets in the air. No damage was reported.
In the Donetsk region, Ukrainian units shelled residential and administrative buildings in Donetsk, Gorlovka, Makeyevka and Yasinovataya.
At night, Ukrainian formations shelled Energodar in the Zaporozhie region.
The AFU also struck the town of Novaya Kakhovka in the Kherson region, as well as at the civil infrastructure in the city of Kherson, including an orphanage. At the same time, two Ukrainian drones were shot down near the Antonovsky Bridge near Kherson. However, on the morning of October 6, another Ukrainian attack hit the bridge.
