"Rusc*sts terrorists are trying with all their might to carry out the defeat of key targets for themselves and at the same time deplete the resources of our air defense. Also with these constant attacks, the enemy seeks to keep the civilian population in deep psychological tension," he stressed.

"Therefore, the attack on the capital was combined, from different directions. In total, our air defense forces detected and destroyed more than 40 air targets. No strikes on Kyiv were allowed! Thanks to the air defense for their excellent work!" - Popko stated.
He added that as a result of the fall of debris from downed missiles and drones in the Podolsk district of the capital, the roof of an apartment building was punctured, without casualties. There was no information about casualties as of this morning.
"Operational data is being updated and refined. Stay tuned for new reports. I remind you of important things - don't skimp on the air defense work. By doing so, you will keep our air defense soldiers safe and, consequently, your lives," summed up the chief of Kyiv city military administration.
