Overnight, Russia launched attacks across Ukraine, targeting the capital, Kyiv, and the western city of Lviv, which is close to the Polish border.

In a post on the messaging app Telegram, the military administration of Kyiv stated that Moscow had launched a drone attack in the early hours of Tuesday and urged residents to seek shelter. There were no casualties immediately reported.

The city’s air defenses, according to the administration, detected and destroyed approximately two dozen Iranian-made Shahed drones in the “massive air attack.” It stated that this was the city’s second drone attack since the beginning of the month.

The military administration of the city of Lviv reported that a piece of “critical infrastructure” was struck and set on fire, but that no one was hurt. Andriy Sadovy, the mayor of the city, had earlier reported explosions in Lviv and the surrounding region. It was unclear whether the explosions were caused by missile strikes or by air defenses.

The Kyiv Independent reported that Zaporizhzhia also received air raid warnings, noting that Russian artillery had been heavily targeting the southern city in recent days.

Anatoly Kurtev, the head of the city council, later stated on Telegram that despite “a restless and noisy night,” the city’s situation was “stable.” According to him, there were no reports of injuries or damage to residential buildings, and all utility systems continued to function normally.
