Russia launched several waves of drone attacks on Kyiv early on Sunday for the second night in a row, stepping up its assaults on the Ukrainian capital after several weeks of pause, the city's military administration said.
Popko said that according to preliminary information, Ukraine's air defense systems hit close to 10 Iranian-made Shahed kamikaze drones in Kyiv and its outskirts.
On Saturday, Ukrainian officials said all drones heading toward Kyiv were destroyed, but some hit infrastructure facilities elsewhere in Ukraine.
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and other officials have warned that Russia would resume its large-scale bombardments of Ukrainian civilian infrastructure during the winter months.
