The blasts rocked Kyiv’s central Shevchenko district, the city’s mayor Vitaliy Klitschko said, adding that 28 drones flew above Kyiv on Monday during the Russian strike.

According to Andrii Yermak, head of the Ukrainian president’s office, Russian forces deployed Iranian-made "Shahed-136" drones in Monday’s strike.
