Eight out of ten Russian kamikaze drones were shot down overnight in Kharkiv Oblast. One of the drones targeted an oil depot, causing a fire that spread to nearby private houses after a fuel spill, completely destroying at least 15 of them.

The Russian attack claimed the lives of seven people, including an entire family: a woman, a man, children aged 4 and 7, and a 6 month old infant. While the bodies of the victims have been identified, the infant’s remains are still being sought. Additionally, three other residents sustained injuries.

Following the fuel leak, the hazardous substance extended along Kharkiv Street into the residential area, Oleh Synehubov, regional governor, reported via Telegram. He also noted that one of the tanks remains full, raising concerns of another potential leak.

The Russian army deployed 31 Shahed drones against Ukraine overnight, with the Air Force confirming the interception of 23 of them, as reported on Telegram on Feb. 10.
