Kyiv suffers largest ever drone attack by Russia leaving five wounded

Ukraine has carried out a major air offensive on Russia’s border regions, a day after Moscow launched its biggest wave of airstrikes on Kyiv and other Ukrainian regions since the war began.

The estimated number of civilians killed in co-ordinated air attacks across in an 18-hour onslaught has risen to at least 30.

More than 144 people were injured and an unknown number were buried under rubble, the officials said. A maternity hospital, apartment blocks and schools were among buildings damaged.

Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky said Russia used every sort of weapon it has to launch the aerial bombardment, with 158 drones and hypersonic, ballistic and cruise missiles.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemned Russia’s attack “in the strongest terms”, saying attacks on civilians must end immediately.

Within hours, the UK announced it was sending Kyiv hundreds of defence missiles, ministers condemning Russian president Vladimir Putin’s “barbarity”.

A British woman who was volunteering as a combat medic in Ukraine was found dead in bed. Her family said there were no suspicious circumstances.


UN calls emergency meeting: ‘Attacks against civilians are unacceptable’

The meeting was called at 9pm UK time on Friday after Ukraine requested an urgent session to address missile and drone strikes by Russia.

World must react to act of terror, says Zelensky

Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, urged the world to react to “this latest act of terror”.

In his nightly address he said more than 100 private houses had been destroyed or damaged, along with 45 multi-storey buildings, schools, two churches, hospitals, a maternity ward and numerous commercial storage units.

“It is crucial for the world to react to this latest act of terror,” he said.

“Many leaders today have already declared their support for Ukraine and Ukrainians, and I am grateful to each one. Especially to those who have assisted our country with air defence.

“Our anti-aircraft defence forces have done a lot today, considering that Russian terrorists deliberately tried to bypass our defences. We will continue to strengthen our air defence and work towards pushing the war back to these human scum where it came from – home to Russia.”
