This was reported by the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Telegram.

The drones were launched from two directions: Primorsko-Akhtarsk of the Russian Federation and the district of Kursk Oblast. The main direction of the attack is Kyiv.

Anti-aircraft defense worked in at least six regions of Ukraine: Kyiv Sumy, Dnipropetrovsk Zaporizhia, Mykolayiv, Kirovohrad. To repel the attack, anti-aircraft missile forces, tactical aviation, mobile fire groups, and electronic warfare units were brought in.

The Ministry of Energy reported that 77 residential buildings and almost 120 institutions were left without power in Kyiv after the shelling.
