Ukraine said it destroyed most of the  45 attack drones launched by Russia overnight, with little damage reported on  Sunday morning.

The announcement comes a day after authorities announced seven killed in a  Russian attack that set a petrol station ablaze in Ukraine's second biggest  city, Kharkiv.

"Overnight the occupiers launched 45 attack drones... As a result of combat  work, 40 enemy Shahed (UAV) were destroyed," the Ukrainian air force said on  Telegram.

Falling debris lightly wounded a 39-year-old man in the southern region of  Dnipro, governor Sergiy Lysak said. Authorities from the capital Kyiv and the central Cherkasy region said there  was preliminary no damage.

But aerial guided bombs targeted the village of Vodyane, in the Kharkiv  region, killing a 56-year-old woman, governor Synegubov said. The day before, his region had seen seven killed after a Russian drone attack  hit a petrol station, spilling burning fuel down the neighbouring street.
