Reuters witnesses heard a minimum of 5 blasts throughout Kyiv, and Ukrainian media video footage revealed a variety of cars and trucks harmed.
“Drones came onto the capital in groups and from different directions,” Serhiy Popko, head of Kyiv’s city military administration, stated on the Telegram messaging app.
Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko stated that a person individual was hurt in the historical Podil community and a fire broke out near among the city’s parks.
Debris from downed drones fell on the Darnytskyi, Solomianskyi, Shevchenkivskyi, Sviatoshynskyi and Podil districts, Klitschko and the city’s military administration stated.
