Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said that one person was killed and seven were injured in the Solomianskyi district. He said that one hospitalized person is in a critical state. According to Kyrylo Tymoshenko, deputy head of the President's Office, a private house was damaged in the district.

Klitschko also reported that there were "damages" in two of the city's districts during the Russian missile strike.
