Eight injured as Russia's missiles hit Kiev

At least eight people were injured in an attack when Russian missiles hit the Ukrainian capital early Thursday. Kiev Mayor Vitali Klitschko confirmed the injuries, stating that medics provided aid to the victims on the spot. Several explosions were reportedly heard in Kiev.

The Kiev city military administration mentioned that air defense systems are in operation in the city and the region. Missile fragments fell on a kindergarten in the Sviatoshynskyi district and on the territory of an enterprise in the Podilskyi district. Additionally, cars were set ablaze in the Shevchenkivskyi district.

A transformer substation and a two-storey non-residential building in the Podilskyi district caught fire due to falling missile debris. The roof of a residential building also caught fire in the same district. In the Sviatoshynskyi district, windows were shattered in two nine-storey buildings by the explosions wave, but no fire was reported.
