Students, mothers with small children, and the elderly are still being advised not to return to Kyiv following the evacuation. The Kyiv Military Administration has made such a request to Kyiv residents, fearing that the threat to the capital has not gone away, and yesterday's missile attacks only serve to prove this.

At the same time, authorities say that the capital's vitality has notably revived today, and there is no immediate fear of seizure.

However, considering recent occurrences in Russia, such as fires at oil depots and explosions at ammunition depots, as well as Russian rhetoric, the possibility of missile strikes has escalated, according to the Kyiv Military Administration.

"We ask not to return students, women with small children, old people!" - it is said in the message.

It will be remembered that the Russians used a cruise missile to destroy a house in Kyiv yesterday. The blast landed on a 25-story residential building. Parts of the first and second levels were destroyed. Ten people were hurt.
