Russia has carried out a new massive drone attack on Ukraine’s capital Kyiv.

Kyiv’s mayor Vitaliy Klitschko said a man died when drone wreckage fell near a petrol station. A woman was injured.

Ukraine’s Air Force reported that overall, Russia launched a record 54 so-called kamikaze drones on Ukrainian targets, 52 of which were shot down.

Russia – which launched its full-scale invasion in February 2022 – has stepped up its attacks on Kyiv, seeking to overwhelm the capital’s defences.

At least two high-rise buildings in different districts of the capital caught fire after being hit by falling drone fragments.
