Kyiv rocked by explosions; ‘suicide drones’ attack, says Ukrainian presidency

A number of residential structures were destroyed in the central Shevchenkivskyi neighborhood of Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, early on Monday, according to mayor Vitalii Klitshchko.
The mayor announced, “Rescuers are on the scene,” adding that a fire also started in a non-residential structure as a result of what he alleged was a drone strike.

Exactly one week after Russian missile strikes on the Ukrainian capital, several explosions were heard in Kyiv early on October 17, 2022, according to AFP journalists. Between 6:35 and 6:58 in the morning, there were three explosions (0335 GMT and 0358 GMT). Just before the initial explosion, air raid sirens were heard.

According to Reuters, there was no official statement about casualties.

On October 17, 2022, early in the morning, multiple explosions were reported in the capital’s Shevchenkivsky district, prompting the chief of staff of the Ukrainian president, Andriy Yermak, to claim that Kyiv had been attacked by “kamikaze drones.”
On social media, he claimed, “The Russians think it would benefit them, but it reveals their desperation.
