Russia’s Daring Nighttime Attack on Ukraine’s Civilian Infrastructure: The Aftermath and Implications


Feb 13, 2024
Kiev Claims Russian UAVs Struck Ukraine, Damaging Dnipro Thermal Power Plant

On the night of February 13, Ukraine reported that Russian drones attacked its territory, causing damage to a thermal power plant in Dnipro. This left a significant part of the city without electricity and water. The armed forces of Ukraine successfully shot down 16 out of 23 Shahed drones in the Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporizhia, and Kherson regions. However, Mayor Filatov of Dnipro condemned the attack as an act of aggression against civilian infrastructure, despite Russia’s repeated denial of such claims.

Following the attack, there were widespread reports of disruption and damage in the targeted areas. Despite this, the armed forces were able to mitigate the impact by intercepting most of the drones. Nevertheless, Mayor Filatov strongly condemned the attack and accused Russia of deliberately targeting civilian infrastructure. In response to these allegations, Russia has consistently denied any wrongdoing.

The evidence from the damage caused by the Russian drones is clear: civilian infrastructure was targeted and damaged. As a result, many people in Dnipro were left without essential services such as electricity and water for a significant period. While it is difficult to say exactly what motivated Russia to launch such an attack on Ukrainian territory, one thing is certain: it will have far-reaching consequences for both countries moving forward.
