KIEV, June 1 (AP) — Russian forces launched a fresh aerial bombardment of Kiev Thursday that began in June, killing at least three people and wounding others, authorities said.

Following a reported 17 attacks on the Ukrainian capital in May, mostly using drones, Russian troops stormed the capital early Thursday, damaging apartment buildings and a medical clinic. Two of the dead were children, according to city officials.

Initial reports of casualties fluctuated, but the toll remained the highest in an attack in nearly a month.

Authorities in Kiev urged residents to stay in shelters or other safe places after a woman died watching an airstrike from her balcony earlier this week.

Ukraine’s air defenses have become increasingly effective at intercepting Russian drones and missiles, but in some cases the resulting debris has caused fires and injuries to buildings and the ground. Early indications were that Kiev’s air defenses had intercepted all incoming weapons early Thursday, with the latest casualties caused by falling debris.

On Wednesday, Russian forces carried out three airstrikes in the southern part of the Kherson region, while launching missile and heavy artillery attacks on the rest of the region. (Associated Press)
