Russia launched kamikaze drones against Kyiv overnight, the first such attack for almost a month.


"After a 25-day lull, the capital of Ukraine suffered another air attack from the enemy," Kyiv's military administration said on Telegram messenger.


Air raid sirens rang out twice in quick succession in the capital on Thursday evening.

According to Ukraine’s air force, 12 Iranian Shahed attack drones were launched from the Bryansk region bordering Ukraine and eight of them were destroyed.

Elsewhere, drone attacks occurred in two other regions of Ukraine overnight.

 In central western Vinnytsia, drones hit a critical infrastructure installation causing a fire but no casualties, governor Sergiy Borzov said on Telegram.


 In the central Poltava region, a drone attack early Friday also hit civilian infrastructure and caused a fire with no reported casualties, the head of the region's military administration, Dmytro Lunin, said.
