President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that the air defense system shot down all 13 of the 13 unmanned drones of Iranian origin that flew to Kyiv in the morning.

"This morning, the terrorists started with 13 "shaheeds". Previously, all 13 were shot down by our Ukrainian air defense systems. Well done, I'm proud," he said in his video message.

The objects of the energy infrastructure were not damaged during the drone attack on the morning of December 14 thanks to the "brilliant work" of the air defense forces, the company "Ukrenergo" reported.

The mass attack on Kyiv by the "Shaheeds" began around 6 in the morning. The Air Force reported that it shot down 13 "shaheeds", but the air alert was still sounding.

The Armed Forces say that the drones were launched from the eastern coast of the Sea of ​​Azov.

According to the city authorities, debris from the drone damaged two administrative buildings in the Shevchenkiv district, and a private house in the village of Vyshneve, according to the president's office.


    According to the military, one administrative building and four houses were damaged in the capital.

    "Kyiv suffered two waves of attack by enemy drones. Thanks to the effective work of air defense and electronic warfare units, 13 enemy drones were destroyed. Debris from downed UAVs hit one administrative building and 4 more residential buildings suffered minor damage. No people were injured," said the head of the Kyiv City Military Administration Serhii Popko.

    In November, Russia did not launch "shahedy" for about three weeks. However, in December, she resumed strikes.

    A few days ago, due to the impact of several drones, Odeshchyna was left without electricity for a long time.
