On Friday, June 14, during the day, the Russian Federation launched drone attacks on the Kyiv region, according to Ruslan Kravchenko, the head of the Kyiv Regional Military Administration.

"From early morning, an air raid alert signal was sounding in the region. Missile danger alternated with attacks by combat drones," Kravchenko reported.

According to him, air defense forces worked in the Kyiv region and destroyed enemy drones. As a result of falling debris in one of the districts, the grass floor caught fire. As of 05:45 p.m., the fire was extinguished.

"No hits on residential or critical infrastructure have been recorded. There were no casualties. Once again, we urge every resident of the region not to ignore the air raid alert signal and to seek shelter until the danger passes," the statement said.
