The enemy attempted to attack the Ukrainian capital with kamikaze drones overnight, but Ukraine's air defense units successfully destroyed all enemy drones that were moving toward Kyiv.

Serhii Popko, head of the Kyiv city military administration, said this in a post on Telegram, according to Ukrinform.

"The sixth air attack on the capital since the beginning of May! This time, the enemy launched an attack using only unmanned aerial vehicles. According to preliminary information, Iranian-made Shahed loitering munitions moving in the direction of the capital were detected in the airspace during the latest air raid alert, which lasted 2.5 hours in Kyiv. All enemy drones that were moving toward Kyiv were successfully destroyed! We are grateful to air defense forces!" he said.
