KYIV: Ukrainian forces shot down eight Russian missiles targeting the capital Kyiv on Monday morning, according to the air force.

“The Russian forces launched a missile assault on Kyiv region” at about 4:00 am local time (0200 GMT), Ukraine’s air force said, adding that “air defence destroyed eight air targets that were flying in the direction of the capital”.

Just over two weeks previously, Kyiv experienced what Ukrainian authorities described as the most severe drone attack since the commencement of Russia’s extensive invasion in 2022.

The Ukrainian Air Force reported that Russia deployed 75 Iranian-made Shahed drones against the capital, of which 74 were destroyed by air defences.
