Sixth Russian air raid on Kiev in July

(Reuters) – Russia launched a sixth air raid on Kiev on the night of Monday-Tuesday, as warning sirens sounded for three hours, the capital’s military administration said.

According to Serhiy Popko, head of the military administration, all Iranian-made Shaheed drones headed for Kiev were shot down.

There were no casualties or significant damage in the attack, he said on Telegram messaging, citing preliminary information.

Reuters was unable to verify this information.

The air alert also concerned southern Ukraine, whose main city of Odessa has been a daily target of Russian missiles and drones since last week.
