Ukraine shoots down 36 out of 42 drones used in Monday attack

 Ukraine shoots down 36 out of 42 drones used in Monday attack

Kyiv's security forces were able to shoot down 36 of 42 attack drones that Russia launched on Monday, Ukraine's interior minister said on Monday.

“It shows that this attack has not reached its goal. I think that the goal was to outdo the last Monday missiles attack. But this did not happen today,” Denys Monastyrskyi told Ukrainian television.

Of those 42 drones, around 30 targeted Kyiv, he said, adding that the others targeted the Sumy and Dnipropetrovsk regions.

At least one drone in Kyiv was brought down by small arms fire from police officers, he added.

However, he warned that the chance of shooting down a drone with small arms fire is quite low with a high risk.

“I would like address those citizens who have firearms in their possession: shooting from a rifle or a gun from the high-rise building might cause more damage than a chance to shot down a drone,” he said.
