Ukraine shot down all of the Russian missiles fired at Kyiv on Thursday morning, according to Serhiy Popko, head of city’s military administration.
Popko said that around 20 missiles were destroyed after being “detected in Kyiv city airspace” in a post on Telegram.
The person who died in the attacks was identified as a 55-year-old man who was killed “due to the fall of missile fragments,” he added.
The US Ambassador to Kyiv, Bridget Brink, described the missile assault as “another cruel attack” that wouldn't stop Ukraine’s allies giving their “determined, unified support.”
The regional administration for the wider Kyiv region reported that an energy facility had been hit in the attack. “Emergency power outages were being introduced throughout the region,” it said.
Most regions of Ukraine are now no longer under an air raid alert.
Earlier Thursday, a Ukrainian Air Force spokesperson said that more than 30 missiles had been fired at Ukraine from Russian aircraft.
The missile salvo came less than 24 hours after the United States and Germany pledged to supply Ukraine with modern battle tanks.
