Russia again attacked Kyiv with Shahed-136 kamikaze drones that camouflage under Russian with the name "Geran-2". The mayor of the city, Vitali Klitschko, said that Ukrainian air defense systems shot down 10 drones in the Kiev region and over the capital.
Klitschko also announced explosions in the Shevchenko district of the capital.
As a result of a morning attack by drones in Kiev and the region, two administrative buildings were damaged, and a private house in the village of Vyshneve was damaged, wrote Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Kyrylo Tymoshenko. He published a photo of the damage, one of which had broken windows in the house, and the other showed the rear window of the car was damaged.
Tymoshenko also reported on the work of air defense and urged citizens to stay in shelters.
The head of the Zhytomyr Regional Military Administration, Vitaliy Bunechko, warned that a second wave of drone attacks is possible. Also on the morning of December 14, an air alert was announced in the Zhytomyr, Vinnitsa, Kyiv regions of Ukraine and Kyiv.
On December 7, the Russian Federation attacked Ukraine with drones for the first time in three weeks. The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that at that time the Russian side launched one air and 11 missile strikes on Ukraine, including three on civilian infrastructure. Earlier, British intelligence , as well as OSINT investigators, drew attention to the fact that reports of the use of drones began to appear less often, which could indicate a reduction in stocks. However, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have already shot down at least 14 drones.
Israeli President Yitzhak Herzog, during a visit to the United States, showed officials photos of Iranian kamikaze drones, comparing them with Russian Geraniums. He also said that the country has secret intelligence confirming the use of drones by Russia, and that Israel is ready to provide them. Judging by the photos available online of the downed Geran-2 drones, which are exactly the same as Iranian drones, the Russian Federation nevertheless acquired a batch of kamikaze drones from Iran, despite the fact that both sides deny the deal, or collects ammunition itself under an Iranian license.
