Ukraine’s air force said the attack was Russia’s largest Iranian-made drone strike of the war.

Klitschko, writing on the Telegram messaging app, said drone fragments had hit apartment buildings in at least three districts of the Ukrainian capital.

Fragments from an intercepted drone had started a fire in a children’s nursery, he said.
