Russia attacked Kyiv with missiles on Oct. 10 for the first time since June 26. Missile strikes hit targets in the city center — in the Shevchenkivskyi district, as well as in the Sviatoshynskyi, Darnytskyi and Dniprovskyi districts.
Advisor to the Minister of Internal Affairs Rostyslav Smirnov said that eight people were killed and 24 were injured in the Shevchenkivskyi district as a result of the missile strikes.
Later, the Kyiv City Military Administration reported that five people were killed and 32 injured.

One of the Russian missiles fell near the monument to Mykhailo Hrushevsky on Volodymyrska Street. Another strike hit the so-called "Klychko Bridge" — a pedestrian glass bridge near the Volodymyrska Hill park.
Other structures impacted in central Kyiv include the Khanenko Museum, the Taras Shevchenko National Museum, the National Philharmonic orchestra building, and a children's playground.
