Over 40 Russian air targets destroyed over Kyiv

Ukraine’s defence forces destroyed more than 40 Russian air targets over Kyiv on the night of 28-29 May. Critical damage, casualties and injuries have been avoided.

“We are grateful to our air defence forces for their precise work! It was another difficult night for the capital. However, thanks to the professionalism of our defenders, the barbarian air raid on Kyiv did not result in damage or destruction of infrastructure and other facilities, nor apartment buildings. No one has been injured or killed”, - said Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko.

“Last night drones came over again. Preliminary reports indicate that the enemy deployed Shahed loitering munitions. Almost simultaneously with the drone attack, enemy TU-95MS aircraft launched cruise missiles, probably Kh-101/555, from the Caspian Sea area. Thus, the attack on the capital was a combined attack from different directions.

Our air defence assets and personnel have detected and destroyed a total of more than 40 air targets. No strikes on Kyiv have been allowed!”, - added Serhii Popko, Head of the Kyiv City Military Administration
