Russian drone strikes hit critical power infrastructure in kyiv | ukraine war

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Russian drone strikes hit critical power infrastructure in Kyiv | Ukraine war” – below is their description.

Multiple explosive drones attacked Ukraine’s capital before dawn on Monday, leaving critical power infrastructure on fire.

The drone attack came three days after what Ukrainian officials described as one of Russia’s biggest assaults on Kyiv since the war started and as Moscow presses on with its effort to torment Ukraine from the air amid a broad battlefield stalemate.

Russia launched 20 self-exploding drones over Kyiv while the city slept, but Ukrainian forces shot down approximately 15 of them, the Kyiv city administration said. No major casualties were reported.
