Kyiv family clear rubble after Russian drone attack


A resident, Maksym, who did not give his last name, showed his child’s bedroom where the bed and the floor were covered with shattered glass, holes from shrapnel above the bed.

"Windows were blown out. Here you can see a penetrating hole, shrapnel holes all over. Everything is damaged," he said.

Residents of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv were urged to head to air raid shelters early on Friday as sirens wailed across the city, a day after Russia carried out one of the biggest aerial assaults since it started the war in February.

Shortly after 2.00 a.m. Kyiv's city government issued an alert on its Telegram messaging app channel about the air raid sirens and called on residents to proceed to shelters.
