An air alarm was sounded in the evening at Kew. After a while, the people of the area heard a loud explosion. The town hall initially announced that air defenses were active in the city, calling on residents to stay in shelters.

The city’s military administration posted photos on Telegram of apartments whose floor-to-ceiling windows were blown apart by the explosion. He said it was not a drone attack, but fragments of a downed drone.

A short time later, debris from another drone shot down by air defenses fell on a detached house in the Darnytskyi district in the east of the city, Mr. Klitschko announced. The Ukrainian Air Force reported that several groups of drones were advancing across the country towards various regions in the center, west and south.
