A man died in Kiev after a "massive" attack by Russian drones, due to a fall of debris of these devices on the capital, announced Sunday its mayor Vitaly Klitschko. In total, the army already counts two dead and three wounded in this unprecedented attack by its proportions. "In total, a record number of explosive drones launched have been recorded: 54!" said the Ukrainian Air Force on Telegram, claiming to have "destroyed 52".
In the capital's Solomyanskyi district, due to falling drone debris near a gas station, a 35-year-old woman was hospitalized and a 41-year-old man died," Klitschko wrote on Telegram. He had explained earlier that Kiev's air defense had shot down "more than 20 drones" heading towards the city. The mayor described this new attack as "massive" and called on the population to stay safe, warning of new waves of drones descending on Kiev "from several directions at once". A fire also broke out at the premises of a company in the Holosiivskyi district, he added.
