Ramallah – the world of the homeland
Ukraine’s air defenses have repelled a new attack it described as “massive” launched by Moscow on Kiev using drones, the Ukrainian military confirmed.
The army noted that this is the twelfth attack of its kind on the capital this month, according to Sky News Arabia.
Sergey Popko, the head of the civil and military administration in Kyiv, wrote in a Telegram post that Russia “attacked Kyiv again from the air.”
He added that the aerial alert in the city lasted more than 3 hours, and explained that “according to preliminary information”, this “huge” attack was carried out by “Shahid” drones made in Iran.
The Ukrainian official stressed, “Ukraine’s guardian angels did not give the aggressor any chance. All the air targets that were in the direction of Kyiv were destroyed by our air defense.”
According to Popko, this attack is the 12th of its kind to hit the capital this May.
The head of the Civil and Military Administration noted that the previous air attack on Kyiv took place four days ago.
On Wednesday night, other cities in Ukraine were subject to Russian airstrikes, particularly Kharkiv (east) and Chernivtsi (west), according to Ukrainian authorities.
He explained that “according to preliminary information”, this “huge” attack was carried out by Iran-made “Shaheed” drones.
“The guardian angels of Ukraine did not give the aggressor any chance. All the air targets that were in the direction of Kyiv were destroyed by our air defense,” the Ukrainian source emphasized.
