As its forces experience setbacks on the battlefield, Russia launched strikes across Ukraine for the second time in a week on Monday. Drones targeted the center of Kyiv during the morning rush hour, and they also blasted other cities around the nation.
After the explosions shook central Kyiv, soldiers fired into the air in an effort to kill down drones. People left for safety. Before an explosion and orange flames, an anti-aircraft rocket could be seen flying into the morning sky.
Later, remnants of a drone used in the attack were discovered by Reuters and had the inscription “For Belgorod”—a possible allusion to the Ukrainian shelling of a Russian territory bordering Ukraine.
Exactly one week prior to the attacks, during the morning rush hour, Russia launched its biggest aerial bombardment on Kyiv and other Ukrainian cities since the war’s beginning.
All night and all morning, the enemy terrorizes the civilian population. Kamikaze drones and missiles are attacking all of Ukraine. A residential building was hit in Kyiv,Volodymyr Zelenskiy
“The enemy can attack our cities, but it won’t be able to break us. The occupiers will get only fair punishment and condemnation of future generations. And we will get a victory.”
No information about blast-related casualties was available right away. Russia has been using more of these Iranian-made “suicide drones,” which fly to their target and explode, according to Ukraine, which said they were involved in the Kyiv strikes.
