Russian invaders, known for their inhumane practices at the front, increased their attacks on civilians! The invaders began to attack settlements, including Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, with drones and missiles. Air defense systems in the Ukrainian inventory were activated. Dozens of missiles were destroyed in the skies over Kyiv.
Before the big offensive was launched by the Ukrainian army, Russian invaders increased their attacks on civilians! Russian invaders, who were helpless in the face of Ukrainian soldiers on the front line, carried out air strikes on civilian settlements liberated from occupation such as Zaporizhia, Kherson, Odesa, Kharkiv, Uman, and Nikopol, including the capital Kyiv in recent weeks. 25 Kalibr and Kh-101 / Kh-555 cruise missiles attacked the settlements, but were repulsed by the successful defense tactics of the Ukrainian army!
Serhiy Popko, head of the Kyiv City Military Administration, said that there were at least 5 air strikes on the capital during May.
Popko said that the Russian invaders used a record number of Iranian-made Shahed drones and continued as follows: “But the plans of the aggressor failed as they did at the front. The launched cruise missiles, most likely of Kh-101 (Kh-555) type, did not reach their targets. The air defense forces of the capital did a perfect job again!
About 15 enemy air targets were destroyed in the airspace around Kyiv.
Valery Zaluzhny, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said that throughout Ukraine, 25 air strikes were carried out by enemy troops, which were successfully destroyed.
The Ukrainian Air Force also destroyed a Russian Orlan-10 reconnaissance aircraft in the Mykolaiv region. The footage of the drone was shared by the Southern Air Command.
