In the early hours of Thursday, Russia launched its most significant missile attack in weeks, targeting Kyiv with 31 missiles.

According to The Kyiv Independent, Ukrainian air defense successfully downed all 31 missiles.

Despite the air defense's efforts, the missile attack injured at least 13 people, including an 11-year-old girl, and caused damage to the city's buildings and infrastructure.

On X, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy wrote, “New Russian missile attack on Kyiv. Over 30 missiles were shot down, including an air-launched ballistic missile. People were injured, and they are all receiving the necessary assistance.”


He continued, sharing his thoughts following the attack, writing, “Such terror continues every day and night. It is possible to put an end to it through global unity. When it helps us with air defense systems. Russian terrorists do not have missiles capable of bypassing Patriot and other leading world systems. This protection is required in Ukraine now. From Kyiv to Kharkiv, Sumy to Kherson, and Odesa to the Donetsk region. This is entirely possible if our partners demonstrate sufficient political will. We must prove that terror is always the loser. We must prove to Russia that it will be forced to accept normal free life in Ukraine. We need the support of our partners. And I am grateful to everyone in the world who truly helps.”
