A missile attack by Russia on Kyiv in the early hours of Wednesday has resulted in at least 45 injuries and caused significant damage to a children’s hospital and residential areas.

Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko reported that the missile debris, intercepted over the eastern side of the Dnipro River in Kyiv, led to injuries and property damage. “At least 45 people were injured after debris from the intercepted missiles fell on the eastern side of the Dnipro river that runs through the capital. Eighteen people, including two children, were taken to hospital, while the others were treated at the scene,” Klitschko said.


The attack caused fires in an apartment building, a private house, and several cars, with the children’s hospital in Kyiv’s Dniprovskyi District also sustaining damage. Additionally, the missile debris affected the local water supply system. Serhiy Popko, head of Kyiv’s military administration, noted that most injuries were caused by the blast wave shattering windows. “There are many injured,” Popko said, indicating the possibility of an increase in the number of casualties.

This assault follows a recent attack on the outskirts of Kyiv, which injured four people and disrupted electricity for over 100 households.

The timing of the attack coincides with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s visit to the United States, where he is advocating for further military aid. President Biden emphasized the urgency of this support, cautioning against the risk of bolstering Russia’s position.
