Kiev was hit again in the night from Sunday to Monday by explosive drones and missiles, according to military authorities, less than 24 hours after suffering its largest drone attack since the beginning of the war. "More than 40 air targets were detected and destroyed by our air defense. The attacks on Kiev have been repulsed," Kiev's civil and military administration said on its Telegram channel. The attack, the fifteenth targeting the Ukrainian capital since early May, was carried out using cruise missiles launched by TU-95MS strategic bombers as well as explosive drones, she said. "In theface of these constant attacks, the enemy seeks to keep the civilian population in a state of deep psychological strain," the administration added.
