KYIV (Reuters) -9 Iranian-made Shahed drones had been shot down early on Monday in Kyiv’s airspace within the newest assault by Russia on town, the capital’s navy administration mentioned on the Telegram messaging app.
A number of blasts had been heard within the metropolis and within the area surrounding the capital, Reuters witnesses reported.
“The enemy is attacking the capital with ‘Shahed’ barrage ammunition,” the administration mentioned on the Telegram messaging app.
Reuters was not in a position to independently confirm the data.
A Reuters witness reported that there was a hearth on account of the assault in Kyiv’s central – and sometimes focused – Shevchenkivskyi district.
Air raid sirens had been blasting off many of the night time into Monday in Kyiv and the area round it, with contemporary alerts declared at 5:25 a.m. native time (0725 GMT).
