According to Klitschko, 28 civilians have been injured in Kyiv, 25 of whom have been hospitalized.
Several apartment buildings, warehouses, an office center, a residential house, and a metro station were damaged in different neighborhoods during the morning attack, reported Serhii Popko, head of the Kyiv City Military Administration.
