For his part, the head of the Kiev regional military administration, Ruslan Kravchenko, said that three private houses were damaged by falling debris in the Kiev region, and a man was wounded in the leg.

Ukraine’s ability to shoot down Russian cruise missiles and drones has increased after obtaining advanced air defense capabilities from its Western allies.

Despite remaining relatively untouched by attacks since the beginning of the year, Kiev saw frequent nighttime airstrikes in May.

It is noteworthy that Kiev had launched a counterattack a few weeks ago after a delay of several months, but this attack did not come as far as Western aspirations and estimates. More than one Western official from Ukraine’s allied countries, led by the United States, indicated that this attack did not achieve its goals and is still slow.

While Kiev confirmed that its attack still hides many plans and capabilities, stressing that what is to come is greater.
