In the morning, the head of the Kyiv city military administration, Sergiy Popko, noted that the capital had experienced its 12th Russian air attack since the beginning of the month during the night. It was massive, carried out in several waves, but the aggressor country failed to reach its targets.
"During the alert, which lasted more than three hours, the enemy, according to preliminary data, used Shahed barraging munitions... The Kremlin army is trying to achieve its objectives, including depleting our air defenses. Fuff! Ukrainian angels of the sky did not give the aggressor a chance," he wrote.
