Officials inspect a destroyed house after the Russian attacks on Kyiv

Ukrainian officials confirmed that they shot down more than a dozen drones during a Russian attack on the capital Kyiv early Wednesday morning.

BBC reporters heard loud explosions shortly after an air strike warning siren sounded.

The explosions rocked the Shevchenkivsky district in the city center, with the air defenses shooting down what was said to be Iranian-made “Shahid” drones.

Russia has repeatedly targeted Ukraine’s energy infrastructure since October with missiles and drones.
