Kyïv hit again by drones and missiles


Kyiv was hit again overnight from Sunday to Monday by explosive drones and missiles, according to military authorities, less than 24 hours after suffering its largest drone attack since the beginning of war. 

“More than 40 air targets were detected and destroyed by our air defense. The attacks on Kyiv have been repelled,” Kyiv's civil and military administration said on its Telegram channel.

This attack, the 15th targeting the Ukrainian capital since early May, was carried out using cruise missiles launched by TU-95MS strategic bombers and explosive drones, she said.

According to her, “with these constant attacks, the enemy seeks to keep the civilian population in a state of deep psychological tension.”

The roof of a building was damaged by falling debris, according to the same source, who also posted a photo of a hole in what appears to be a corrugated iron roof. “There are no dead or injured,” the mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko, said on Telegram.

During the night from Saturday to Sunday, two people were killed and three others injured in what Ukrainian authorities have called the “largest drone attack” on Kyiv since the Russian invasion began in February 2022. According to the Ukrainian General Staff, 58 of the 59 Iranian-made Shahed drones launched over the capital that night were shot.
