Russia escalated its attacks on the Ukrainian capital after several weeks of halt by launching several drone attacks on the Kyiv, Poltava and Cherkasy regions of Ukraine, Al Jazeera reported, citing Ukrainian officials.
The head of Kyiv’s military administration, Serhiy Popko, said on social media, “The enemy’s UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) were launched in many groups and attacked Kyiv in waves from different directions, at the same time constantly changing the vectors of movement along the route.”
“That is why the air raid alerts were announced several times in the capital,” she added.
Popko said preliminary information indicated that Ukraine’s air defence systems downed 10 Iranian-made Shahed kamikaze drones in Kyiv and the city’s outskirts, according to Al Jazeera.
