On Wednesday, December 14, Kyiv survived another attack from the occupation army with Iranian-made Shahed drones marked "Geran-2" by Russia. Air raid alerts in the city started at 5:55 a.m. and lasted until 9:07 a.m.
A total of two waves of attack with enemy loitering munitions were launched on Kyiv. Thanks to the effective work of air defense and electronic warfare units, all 13 of the 13 UAVs launched by the enemy were shot down, as the Kyiv City Military Administration reported.
A few buildings in the city were damaged by falling fragments of the enemy drones.
"Fragments from shot UAVs struck an administrative building, and four other residential buildings suffered minor damage (in Kyiv's Shevchenkivskyi district). No one was hurt," Serhii Popko, the Head of the Kyiv City Military Administration wrote.
In addition, a private house in Kyiv’s suburb Vyshneve was also damaged by the morning attack.
Context. After a week-long pause, the Russian occupation army resumed the use of Iranian-made kamikaze drones for attacking Ukraine.
Western media reported earlier that Russia could renew its practice of using Shaheds after replenishing the stock. At the same time, Russia consistently denies having Iranian-made UAVs. Last month, CNN wrote that Russia would have received Iranian ballistic missiles by the end of 2022.
