 Russia Launches New Drone Attacks in Ukraine

Russia has launched new drone attacks in Ukraine, striking targets in the capital Kyiv and other areas.

A series of explosions hit Kyiv on Monday, setting buildings on fire, and sending people to look for shelter.

The increase in drone attacks followed an intense wave of strikes by Russian forces last week that hit Kyiv and other cities across the country. Those attacks involved missiles and drones.

Ukrainian officials said energy centers were hit by Monday’s drone attacks. A housing building was also reportedly struck, killing at least three people, The Associated Press reported.

A pregnant woman was among those killed in the attack on the housing structure, Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko said. Ukraine’s Interior Minister Denys Monastyrskyi said there had been deaths in other cities, but he did not provide a total count.

“I have never been so afraid…It is murder, it is simply murder, there are no other words for it,” said 29-year-old Vitalii Dushevskiy. He lives in the building that was hit. The driver’s roommate, who gave his name only as Nazar, said when they had tried to leave, they found the building’s steps “all gone.”

In a nearby neighborhood, 52-year-old Elena Mazur searched for her mother. She said her mother had been able to call her to say that she was buried under debris caused by an attack. “She is not picking up the phone,” Mazur said. She hoped that her mother had been rescued and was taken to a hospital.
