“At least eleven Iranian-made Shahed drones have been shot down in the last few hours in the Kiev region by anti-aircraft units of the Ukrainian defense,” said mayor of the capital Vitali Klitschko. “At least two bombs damaged two administrative buildings in the city but without causing any casualties,” said rescue services spokeswoman Svitlana Vodolaga.
In Kiev the anti-aircraft sirens sounded at 5.57 but the first explosion at six and eight minutes, local time. “At 6:30, three explosions have already been heard in Kiev. Ukrainians wake up not with the ringing of alarm clocks, but with explosions. Thanks to our neighbor Russia! Good day!” wrote Ukrainian MP Oleksiy Goncharenko. For his part, the governor of the Kiev region, Oleksii Kuleba, urged residents to go or stay in shelters.
