According to Kyiv officials, a series of Russian drone attacks on the Ukrainian capital has killed one person and set fires throughout the city. This unfortunate incident has aroused serious concerns, indicating the need for urgent attention and commitment to ensure the safety and security of the impacted areas.

In a statement, Mayor Vitali Klitschko of Kyiv informed that the Ukrainian air defense forces have already successfully intercepted over 20 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) en route to the capital. He further cautioned about an imminent new wave of drone attacks. Subsequently, the Ukrainian Air Force provided an update, revealing that Russia had launched 54 Iranian Shahed drones overnight, out of which 52 were effectively destroyed by Ukrainian forces.

Sharing the news on Twitter, the air force stated, “The enemy conducted another overnight assault on military installations and critical infrastructure in the central regions of the country, specifically targeting Kyiv Oblast. The majority of the attack drones were destroyed near the Air Command ‘Center’ zone!”

The situation underscores the ongoing threat and the continued efforts of Ukrainian forces to counter these hostile drone attacks.

Mayor Klitschko said that in the aftermath of the attacks, a 41-year-old man tragically lost his life in Kyiv’s Solomyanskyi district. Additionally, a 35-year-old woman sustained injuries when debris from a falling drone struck a gas station.

The mayor also conveyed that the falling drone debris had caused fires in various buildings throughout the capital. These incidents further highlight the destructive impact and dangers associated with drone attacks on the city. Mayor Klitshko shared this information via Telegram. He also added that a fire, spanning an area of 700 square meters (7,534 square feet), had been successfully contained. However, buildings within a 1,000-square-meter area suffered damage as a result of the fire.

Furthermore, in the Pecherskyi district, which is the historical center of Kyiv, falling drone debris ignited a fire on the roof of a nine-story building, as mentioned by the Mayor of Kyiv. This incident further highlights the extent of the damage caused by the drone attacks in the city.

Nikopol is under attack.

Russian forces pounded the city of Nikopol with heavy artillery, according to Serhii Lysak, the head of the Dnipropetrovsk region’s military administration.

“The enemy used heavy artillery to attack the civilian population again.” “During the night, the aggressor attacked Nikopol twice, damaging six private houses and two outbuildings,” Lysak posted on Telegram. According to Lysak, the attack damaged a gas and main power line, but no casualties were reported at the time of filing in this report.
