Two missiles hit a critical infrastructure facility in the city of Kremenchuk during the Russian attack in the early hours of Feb. 16, Poltava Oblast Governor Dmytro Lunin wrote on his Telegram channel.

According to Lunin, there were no dead or injured people as a result of the attack.

A group of enemy drones was also spotted in the region, in particular near the city of Poltava itself. Air Defence Forces were activated, Lunin said.

Russia carried out another barrage of missile and drone strikes against Ukraine in the early hours of Feb. 16, launching 36 air- and sea-based missiles, including Kalibr cruise missiles. Sixteen missiles were intercepted by Ukrainian air defenses.

An energy infrastructure facility was hit by three missiles in Lviv Oblast during the attack.

Elsewhere in the country, an industrial facility and a residential neighbourhood were damaged in Pavlohrad in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. Seven houses were completely destroyed. A woman was killed and another seven civilians were injured.

Missiles also hit an energy infrastructure facility in Kirovohrad Oblast.

Russian invading forces launched balloons on the afternoon before their attack, likely to spy out the Ukraine air defense positions.

Six such aerial targets were spotted near Kyiv, and at least one of them was shot down.
