Ukraine shot down more than 30 aerial targets, including drones and missiles, launched by Russia at Kyiv overnight on June 2 in its sixth consecutive aerial attack on the capital, the Kyiv City Military Administration said on Telegram.

Over the month of May alone, Russia conducted over 20 missile and drone attacks against Kyiv.

No damages or casualties were reported. The administration reported that debris from a drone that was shot down had fallen onto a road in the city's Darnytskyi District and that emergency workers were on site.

Explosions occurred in Kyiv overnight on June 2, Kyiv Mayor Vitalii Klitschko reported on Telegram at around 3:15 local time.

A day earlier overnight on June 1, a Russian aerial attack on Kyiv killed three civilians, including two children. The attack also injured 14 people in two Kyiv districts.
