The Russians continue to try to terrorise the capital of Ukraine with attack drones and missiles.
However, Ukraine's air defences, in cooperation with other units of the Ukrainian Defence Forces, destroyed all 15 cruise missiles and 21 attack drones launched by Russia on the night of 2 June, the Air Force has said.
First, the Russian invaders attacked with Shahed-136/131 kamikaze drones at around 23:00 on the night of 2 June. They approached from the south, flying along the terrain and the Dnipro riverbed.
At around 3:00 a.m., cruise missiles X-101/X-555, fired by Tu-95MS strategic bombers from the Caspian Sea, were already in Ukrainian airspace. They came in from the north, attacking Kyiv, and manoeuvred in an attempt to mislead our air defences.
