The Kyiv City Military Administration reported around 7:50 a.m., that debris had fallen on a four-story residential building in the Holosiivskyi district.

Just an hour earlier, both Kyiv Mayor Vitalii Klitschko and Serhii Popko, announced that the wreckage of a downed drone fell on a high-rise building in the Dniprovskyi district of the city, resulting in a fire.

Additionally, the second floor of a five-story residential building reportedly collapsed in the Solomianskyi District of the city as a result of the fall of drone debris. According to Klitschko, rescuers are working to unblock two women trapped in the rubble.

At least two victims were reported in Solomianskyi and a fire broke out on the premises of a kindergarten in the same district as a result of fallen debris of a downed drone. Also in Solomianskyi, an 11-year-old child was reportedly injured.

Throughout the night, the Air Force reported sightings of Shahed drones in the regions of Kherson, Mykolaiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Kryvyi Rih, Chernihiv, Sumy, and Kyiv.
