According to preliminary information from the Chief of the Kyiv City Military Administration, most of the missiles were shot down.

"The enemy launched a complex attack from different directions simultaneously, using UAVs, cruise missiles and probably ballistic missiles. It was exceptional in its density - the maximum number of attacking missiles in the shortest possible time," he said.

According to Popko, most of the damage caused by the falling debris was in the Solomyanskyi district.

"Preliminary reports of debris falling in the Solomianskyi, Shevchenkivskyi, Sviatoshynskyi, Obolonskyi and Darnytskyi districts of the capital. The biggest damage was in the Solomenskyi district, where a non-residential building and several vehicles caught fire. The fire has been extinguished.

In the rest of the districts, the damage is not significant - in most of them, debris fell on parked cars, the adjacent territory or the forest park area," he said.


Recall that the occupiers shelled Luhansk again: a former aviation school was hit.
