Russia launches heavy air raids on Kiev


Story: Reuters footage taken at night showed flashes and explosions over the Kiev skyline.

In a comment posted on the Telegram messaging app, Kiev city military chief Serhiy Popko said the largest number of attack missiles had been detected in a short period of time, destroying most of the “enemy targets” in Kiev’s airspace. . .

It was not immediately clear how many objects had been shot down over the city and whether any of them had hit their targets.

After a few weeks of hiatus, Russia resumed its long-range missile strike tactics in late April, launching a flurry of strikes, often targeting Kiev, in recent days. Ukraine has so far successfully repelled most of the attacks.
