A pedestrian bridge damaged by a Russian attack on Kyiv on Oct. 10 is now under repair, Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klychko wrote, with accompanying photos, on Telegram on Nov. 10.

According to Klychko, glass for the railing and the floor has already been manufactured and delivered.

"Specialists are installing new glass elements to replace those damaged by the Russian missile explosion,” Klychko said.

“Out of 16 elements of floor glass, 14 have already been replaced. The handrail lighting is also being repaired.”

The Telegram post has a video of the repair process, and Klychko added that soon Kyiv residents and guests will be able to walk across the bridge again.

On Oct. 10, Russian forces launched a mass missile strike against numerous targets in Ukraine. Kyiv itself was struck for the first time the first time since June 26. The attacks hit the city center — the Shevchenko, as well as Sviatoshyn, Darnytsa and Dnipro neighborhoods

A number of buildings were damaged in the attack, including the Khanenko Museum, the National Shevchenko Museum, the National Philharmonic building, and a children's playground. The blast wave also damaged the windows of the Central Railway Station, the building of the Shevchenko University, the business center 101 Tower, and the visa department of the German Embassy.
