On Monday, October 17, 2022, Russia launched a new attack against Ukrainian Capital, blasting it with a deadly wave of “Kamikaze drones,” leaving at least seven people dead and numerous others injured.

According to Prime Minister Denys Shmygal, the strikes hit crucial infrastructure in three areas, knocking off electricity in hundreds of villages throughout the nation.

Two of the people who were killed in the capital were a young married couple, according to Vitali Klitschko, the mayor of Kiev. He described the couple as “a husband and wife who were expecting a child, the woman was six months pregnant,” according to news source AFP.

According to Russian authorities, at least 7 people were killed by the Russian Kamikaze drone attack in Kyiv and Sumy, the total number is not yet known as rescue attempt is still ongoing.

Social media has seen widespread sharing of videos showing attack drones hovering menacingly above Ukrainian airspace and slamming into structures. Defense specialists claim that these drones are Iranian-made Shahed-136 “loitering munitions,” also known as Geran-2 in the Russian military.

The battle in Ukraine has been extensively followed by defence researcher Rob Lee, who has tweeted several videos of what look to be Geran-2 loitering munitions hovering over Kyiv and the country’s eastern Sumy area.

In the videos, the attack drones are shown flying silently as they close in on their prey. Tweeting images of burnt apartments, Ukrainians denounced the drone raids for allegedly damaging civilian infrastructure.

Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, claimed that the bombing of a crucial bridge connecting Russia to the annexed Crimea, which he attributed to Ukraine, was the cause of last week’s attacks.

It was the first time during the war that the centre of Kyiv had been directly targeted.

Mr. Putin stated earlier this week that additional significant strikes on Ukraine were not required. He added that it was not his intention to destroy the nation and that the majority of the planned targets had been hit.
