Ukraine shoots down 30 ‘Shahed’ drones made by Iran, sent by Russia

Ukraine’s air force shot down 30 out of 40 Iranian-made “Shahed” drones launched by Russia in an overnight attack on central and southern regions, regional and military officials said on Saturday. The South Military command said that 20 drones were shot down in the central Vinnytsia region and another 10 over the Odesa and Mykolaiv regions in the south.
Natalia Humeniuk, a spokesperson for the southern command, said Russia continued to attack port infrastructure, including on the Danube river, and was also attempting to strike critical infrastructure facilities in other Ukrainian regions “to impact the economy”.
Russia has intensified air attacks on Ukrainian grain export infrastructure on the Danube River and in Odesa port since July, when Moscow quit a UN-brokered deal that allowed safe Ukrainian grain exports via the Black Sea.
A huge fire erupted at an oil pipeline in the western Ukrainian region of Ivano-Frankivsk on Saturday, injuring nine people, authorities said. The blaze caused an oil spill spanning 100 square metres before it was extinguished.
President Volodymyr Zelensky said Saturday he wants to turn Ukraine’s defence industry into a “large military hub” by partnering with Western weapons manufacturers.
At the first International Defence Industries Forum in Kyiv, Ukrainian foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba said African countries are interested not only in buying weapons from Kyiv but are also ready to manufacture them. “Africa was one of the largest markets for Ukrainian military products before the outbreak of war,” Kuleba said on Friday. Officials from over 30 countries and 250 defence firms gathered at the forum, which was held as Ukraine seeks to bolster its arms industry.
