Kyiv– Kyiv was subjected to a fresh wave of aerial bombardment as Russian forces commenced June with a devastating attack, claiming the lives of at least three people and causing injuries to several others. This latest assault comes on the heels of a series of 17 reported attacks on the Ukrainian capital in May, with drones being predominantly employed as the means of attack. The early morning strike severely damaged apartment buildings and even a medical clinic, further exacerbating the toll on the already war-ravaged city.
Tragically, among the victims were two children, as confirmed by city officials. The reports have not clarified how many people died in this incident. But some reports even say that this attack has caused the highest number of deaths from any such attack in the last month.
Earlier this week, a woman died while observing an aerial assault from her balcony. This prompted Kyiv authorities to issue urgent appeals for residents to seek safety in shelters or other secure locations.
The relentless barrage of attacks has left the people of Kyiv living in fear and uncertainty.
The renewed violence heavily affects human lives and ravages critical infrastructure, including residential buildings and essential medical facilities.
Due to this situation, many World leaders have also expressed their emotions towards the Ukraine situation. They are also looking for ways these hostilities could end soon. Ukraine and Kyiv people have faced a humanitarian crisis to a huge extent. International organisations and neighbouring countries are mobilising resources to aid and relieve the affected population.
