On the night of November 25, the Russian military launched massive drone strikes on Kyiv, in particular on the central districts of the city – Solomianskyi and Dniprovskyi. Although Ukrainian air defense forces stopped most of the attacks, significant damage to infrastructure was caused. In Kyiv, 74 apartment buildings and 120 enterprises currently remain without electricity and water.
Spokesperson for the Kyiv military administration, Mykhaylo Shamanov, told the Eastern European bureau of Report about the results of the rocket attack on the capital:
“This morning, the Russian Armed Forces subjected Kyiv to rocket fire for the fourth time in a month. According to the head of the Kyiv city military administration, Colonel-General Serhiy Popko, this attack was the biggest since the beginning of the war,” he said.
Shamanov noted that 66 Shahed UAVs were shot down in Kyiv and the region, and debris fell in different parts of the capital. “As a result of the attack, five people were injured. They were provided with medical assistance,” he said.
According to Ukrenergo (electricity transmission system operator in Ukraine), in Kyiv and the region, main overhead power transmission lines and distribution lines were damaged as a result of drone attacks. The work is currently underway to restore energy supply in the region.
