Mayor: Russian ballistic attack on Kyiv injures 7 people, hit sports facility in city’s center district

Russian military hit Ukraine’s capital with two ballistic missiles at about 10:30 am. An air alert was announced in Kyiv just a minute before, at 10:29 a.m.

According to Kyiv Mayor Vitaly Klitschko, the Russian attack injured seven people, including a 16-year-old girl. Two of the seven injured were hospitalized.

Ukraine’s Air Force Commander Mykola Oleshchuk said that Ukraine’s defense forces destroyed two ballistic missiles that Russia launched from occupied Crimea. Experts reportedly are determining the type of missles.

Russian missiles hit four districts of the capital: Holosiivskyi, Pecherskyi, Solomianskyi, and Darnytskyi. Multi-story buildings and one private building were damaged.

The debris from downed missiles damaged a three-story educational institution and windows in neighboring residential buildings in the Pechersk district.

The Kyiv Military Administration reported that the wreckage of the Russian missile hit a multi-storey building in Solomyansky district. The remains of a missile were reportedly found in a forest belt in Holosiivskyi.

In Darnytskyi, the debris fell on a private building and caused a fire in a non-residential building.

By accusing Ukraine of terrorism, allegedly telling Ukraine organized an attack on a City Hall concert near Moscow, Russia is trying to hide its own terrorist nature and distract the world from its daily terror against peaceful Ukrainians.

“There are no atrocities Russian bastards would not commit, including an attempt of a ballistic strike at the heart of a multimillion city,” Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said in X following the attack on Kyiv.

“This is a reminder that Ukraine urgently requires more air defense, particularly Patriot systems and missiles capable of repelling any Russian attack,” Kuleba added.

The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) reported earlier that shortages in artillery and delays in receiving Western military assistance are expected to introduce uncertainty into Ukrainian operational strategies.

The Senate has approved Biden’s request for $95 billion in emergency funds, with $60+ billion earmarked for Ukraine to address its military’s munitions shortage in the war against Russia. But the bill has been stalled in the House.
