Russian missile and kamikaze drone attacks killed more than 170 civilians and destroyed over 400 residential buildings in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Kyiv’s Mayor Vitalii Klitschko said.

Seven children were killed in Kyiv over the past sixteen months of the all-out Russian war against Ukraine, according to Vitalii Klitschko.

“Putin needs our territory. He does not need us, Ukrainians. That is why he is killing civilians,” Kyiv’s Mayor said.

Although the Ukrainian air defense takes down most of the aerial targets over Kyiv, the downed missiles and drones’ wreckage often damages residential buildings, killing civilians.
