The explosions came from the same central Kyiv quarter where a week ago a bullet struck a children’s playground and crossroad near the Kyiv National University’s main structures.
Social media posts showed a fire in the area of the supposedly strike, with black bank rising into the early morning light.
Russian forces struck Kyiv with Iranian Shahed drones, wrote Andrii Yermak, the head of the Ukrainian chairman’s office, in a post on the Telegram social media point. Russia has constantly been using the so- called self-murder drones in recent weeks to target civic centers and structure, including power stations.
The strike on Kyiv comes as fighting has boosted in the eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk in recent days, as well as the continued Ukrainian counterattack in the south near Kherson and Zaporizhzhia. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said last night in his evening address that there was heavy fighting around the metropolises of Bakhmut and Soledar in the Donetsk region. The Donetsk and Luhansk regions make up the bulk of the artificial east known as the Donbas, and were two of four regions adjoined by Russia in September in defiance of transnational law.
