At least five explosions have been heard in Kyiv in the second attack on the capital city in the past week. Writing on Telegram, Kyiv Mayor Vitalii Klitschko said there were explosions in the Shevchenkivskiy district, which was hit by several strikes last week. He said rescuers were on site where a fire had broken out, and urged residents to stay in air raid shelters. Andriy Yermak, head of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s office, said Iranian-made Kamikaze drones (Shahed-136) were responsible for the attack and that “It shows [Russian forces’] desperation”.
