Three civilians were killed in a Russian attack on the capital on June 24 that caused a fire in a residential building, with eight more injured, according to local authorities.

Russia launched more than 20 missiles at Kyiv and the surrounding oblast in its eighth attack on the capital this month, according to Head of the Kyiv City Military Administration Serhiy Popko said.  

Missile debris shot down by the city's air defenses hit a 24-story apartment building in Kyiv's western Solomyanskyi district, causing a fire to break out on the 16th, 17th, and 18th floors, the Kyiv City Military Administration reported on Telegram.
