As a result of the Russian June 16 missile attack, an 82-year-old woman and another civilian were injured in Kyiv Oblast, reported the regional prosecutor's office.

Residential buildings and a shop were damaged in the settlement, according to prosecutors. Emergency services and law enforcement are working on the spot.

Russia launched six Kinzhal ballistic missiles and six Kalibr cruise missiles on Kyiv Oblast at about 11 a.m. local time, according to the Air Force. All the missiles were shot down by Ukraine's air defenses, the Air Force wrote, which suggests the damages and casualties in the region might have been caused by falling debris.

In addition, two Russian reconnaissance drones were destroyed, the Air Force added.

Kyiv City Mayor Vitalii Klitschko initially said an explosion occurred in the city's Podilskyi district but later clarified that it was the sound of the working air defense.

According to Klitschko, there were no damages or casualties in the city.
