Air defenses in Kyiv intercepted all of what the Kyiv City Military Administration said were Iranian-made Shahed drones according to preliminary information overnight on May 20.

Debris from the intercepted drones caused a fire on the roof of a residential building in the city's Dniprovskyi District, located on the east bank of the capital, the administration earlier reported.

In the Pecherskyi District, located in central Kyiv, the windows of a residential building were damaged and in the Solomyanskyi District, located in the western part of the city, a road and vehicles also sustained damages.

No casualties have been reported at the time of publication.

Close to 1 a.m. Kyiv time on May 20, the Kyiv Oblast Military Administration said on Telegram that air defenses above Kyiv and Kyiv Oblast were operating and that there was a threat of a drone attack.
