Russia launched a missile attack against the Ukrainian capital kyiv, a nearby region, for the first time in weeks and bombed the east and south of the country with drones, Ukrainian authorities reported.

Serhiy Popko, head of the capital's military administration, said that “after a long pause of 52 days, the enemy has resumed missile attacks against Kiev,” Popko said on the Telegram messaging application. “The missile did not reach kyiv, the air defenses shot it down as it approached the capital,” he added, saying there were no casualties or major damage.

Ruslan Kravchenko, regional governor of the central kyiv region, said five private homes and several commercial buildings in the area were damaged.

Ukrainian air defenses also shot down 19 Iranian-made Shahed drones out of 31 launched by Russian forces in the overnight attack on the country's southern and eastern regions, the air force said.
