Early on 1 June 2023, the Ukrainian air defense system in Kyiv intercepted and shot down at least 10 projectiles that Russian military forces had fired at the city. Debris from the destroyed explosives fell into several areas of Kyiv, including the hard-hit Desnianskyi district, where at least three people were killed and four others were injured. The Russian military has recently increased the frequency of its aerial attacks targeting Kyiv and central Ukraine.
