Ukraine reportedly targeted a drone academy located in Russia-occupied Donetsk on Tuesday night.

According to the Sun, six Russians were killed and 11 more were wounded in the late-night attack.

The Ukrainian military reportedly used a high-mobility artillery rocket system (HIMARS) supplied by the United States to conduct the devastating attack.

Aerial footage showed the aftermath of the strike on the blitzed Zhoga Republican Centre for Unmanned Systems in Donetsk. Survivors were reportedly seen fleeing the academy while others climbed over rubble and scaled ladders to escape the destruction.

Denis Pushilin, who serves as the Head of the Donetsk People's Republic, confirmed the attack on the Russian drone academy on Tuesday night. He reported hearing “three to four” blasts in the city.

six Russians were killed and 11 more were wounded in the late-night attack.

"The Republican Centre for Unmanned Systems has trained more than 10,000 military experts for the Russian army since the start of its work,” Dmitry Barov said moments before the HIMARS strike.

Ukraine has continued to humiliate Russia ever since Vladimir Putin's war first started in February 2022.

Initial reports indicated that two kamikaze drones were aimed at Bryansk – the capital of a Russian region bordering Ukraine.

While one of the drones was successfully intercepted using electronic jamming technology, the other managed to hit the Kremniy EL plant which resulted in a "catastrophic" explosion.

The subsequent fire was said to be so intense that it required more than 40 firefighters to bring it under control. No casualties were reported from the incident.

Russia’s position in Ukraine is believed to be so poor that Putin was forced to “pray to God” for help earlier this year.

Putin reportedly visited an Eastern Orthodox church to pray for help in his ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

Sources close to the 71-year-old Russian president said that Putin visited an Eastern Orthodox church in July to pray for help in his ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

“We pray for the granting of victory to our Christ-loving leaders and our Army over the enemy,” Putin and a priest reportedly prayed. “We pray, all-gifted Lord, hear us soon and have mercy on us.”

“Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy.”
