Ukraine war: Kyiv is the target of the largest drone bombardment since the war began.

Residents were awakened by explosions before dawn on Saturday, and the booms of Kyiv’s air defenses rang around the city for more than six hours.

Wave after wave of strikes came from the north and east.

According to officials, more than 75 Iranian-made Shahed drones were fired toward the capital, with all but one being shot down.

With Russia’s missile inventories diminishing, Shahed drones are considered as a low-cost alternative. They travel at a slower speed than ballistic missiles and have a characteristic wingspan.

The whines of their engines mixed with the booms of the city’s air defenses that night.

Even if a missile or drone is intercepted, falling debris can be deadly.

This attack resulted in no reported deaths, but at least five people were hurt, including an 11-year-old child, according to Kyiv mayor Vitaliy Klitschko.

Among the structures damaged was a kindergarten.

Moscow had been suspected of stockpiling missiles for several weeks. That quickly came to an end this morning.
