Russia launched 15 Iranian-made Shahed-136 drones on Kyiv and Dnipropetrovsk oblasts overnight on March 28, with 14 downed by Ukrainian air defense, Ukraine’s General Staff reported in its daily morning update on Facebook.
The drone that wasn't intercepted hit a business in Dnipro City and caused a large fire.
It took several hours for firefighters to extinguish 4,000 square meters (43,000 square ft) blaze, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast governor Serhii Lysak wrote in Telegram.
All twelve suicide drones launched toward Kyiv were shot down, as well as a reconnaissance Granat-4 drone, the Air Defense Forces reported.
The fragments of the intercepted drones fell in Svyatoshynskyi District of the capital.
A 200 square meters (2150 square ft) fire broke out at a store and an administration facility but was promptly extinguished. Two other local fires were also put out by emergency services. No casualties were reported, wrote Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko.
Kherson Oblast was attacked with two guided bombs, but no other details were provided.
