According to Ukrainian air defense, 8 aerial targets were destroyed, flying in the direction of the capital on a ballistic trajectory.

"A missile fragment damaged an unfinished building in the Darnytskyi district due to the enemy attack. The fire was quickly extinguished. Another fragment fell on the lawn. No burning," Vitali Klitschko, the mayor of Kyiv, posted on Telegram.

He later clarified that four people were injured.

"Four people - all adults - were injured as a result of an enemy missile attack. Medical assistance was provided to them on the spot. A rocket fragment was also found on the territory of a warehouse store in Darnytskyi district. There was no fire or damage to the building," Klitschko wrote.

Kyiv City Military Administration and Ukraine's Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko shared photos of the aftermath of the downed enemy missile.

"Debris fell in the Darnytskyi district of the city. There was no subsequent fire. A blast wave damaged the windows of a private house at another address. Rescuers inspected the damaged building. There was no fire detected. At another address, a fence was damaged and windows were smashed," Klymenko wrote on Telegram.

The debris of a Russian missile fell right on the yard of a resident in the Darnitskyi district, resulting in an explosion that damaged private residential houses and destroyed one. A huge crater 4 meters deep and 10 meters in diameter was formed at the site of the explosion.
