On Wednesday, Ukraine reported that Russia carried out 14 drone strikes and fired a cruise missile in their most recent attacks.
The Ukrainian air force reported that their air defenses successfully shot down all of the drones, which were targeting areas in central, southeastern, and western Ukraine.
There were no initial reports of significant harm or injuries.
The Ukrainian armed forces reported that the Russian X-22 missile landed in a field in the Zaporizhzhia area before reaching its intended destination.
Ukraine recognized the Russian unmanned aerial vehicles as Shahed drones produced by Iran, and the recent assaults occurred after the United States cautioned that Iran may supply Russia with ballistic missiles for use in their conflict in Ukraine.
According to National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby, Russia has been providing Tehran with exceptional defense cooperation, which includes assistance with missiles, electronics, and air defense, as a way of reciprocating their support. He shared this information with reporters on Tuesday.
According to Kirby, Iran has given Russia guided bombs and ammunition for use in Ukraine, in addition to drones.
