That’s according to the State Emergency Service, as seen by Ukrinform.

Tentative reports say, as the Russians launched their latest one-way attack drone barrage, debris from the downed UAVs fell in Kyiv’s Dniprovskyi, Solomyanskyi, Pecherskyi, and Darnytskyi districts.

Rescuers put out a fire that broke out on the roof of a nine-storey apartment block in Dniprovskyi district.

"The rescue service was notified at 01:22. The fire that engulfed 80 square meters was extinguished at 04:06. Four apartments have been damaged," the State Emergency Service noted.

According to rescuers, no fires were reported at other debris crash sites. There were no casualties overnight Saturday, the report adds.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, in the early hours of Saturday, May 20, Russia attacked Ukraine from the north, launching 18 Iranian-made Shahed-136/131 one-way attack drones, targeting Kyiv region. All enemy UAVs were downed by air defenses.
