"Two enemy missiles are now scrap metal," said Dnipropetrovsk Regional Governor Serhiy Lysak.

Russia launched cruise missiles from six Tu-95MS bombers over the Caspian Sea early on Jan. 13, triggering air-raid alerts across Ukraine. The enemy also deployed MiG-31K fighter jets, which fired several Kinzhal ballistic missiles.

Explosions were reported in Dnipro, Chernihiv, Kropyvnytsky, and Kremenchuk.

In Kremenchuk, an unexploded missile fell into a private yard, according to Filip Pronin, the Poltava Oblast military administration head.
