People in Kyiv run for cover as Russia launches daytime strike
Guardian, 29 May 2023
Russian forces have launched an intense and unusual daytime missile barrage at Kyiv, forcing people to flee to bomb shelters, in what appears to be an effort to exhaust Ukraine’s air defences.
The Ukrainian military said it had intercepted all the ballistic missiles fired at the city in the attack, which began at 11am. One person was reported to have been injured.
Residents, who had become accustomed to a string of night-time attacks, ran to Kyiv’s metro stations and other shelters after a succession of loud bangs as incoming missiles were intercepted and bursts of smoke from air defences dotted the clear morning sky
