In Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, Russian missile and drone attacks continued for several days, killing three people, including a child, on the 1st. Meanwhile, tensions continue after the governor of Russia's western province, which borders Ukraine, announced that it had been attacked by Ukrainian troops.

The Ukrainian Air Force announced on the 1st, "At about 2:45 a.m., the capital Kyiv was attacked by Russian short-range ballistic missiles, Iskander, etc. We intercepted all 10 missiles, but unfortunately there were casualties, including children."

According to the city authorities and local police in Kyiv, although the missile was successfully intercepted, three people, including a 9-year-old girl and her mother, were killed and 3 injured by falling fragments, and hospitals and kindergartens were damaged.

Since last month, the Russian military has repeatedly launched intensive attacks with drones and missiles with unusual frequency and scale, killing one person and injuring 12 others on May 5.

On the other hand, the governor of Russia's western Belgorod region, which borders Ukraine, announced on social media on the 30st that eight people were injured in shelling of Shebekino near the border by Ukrainian troops, and two people were injured by shelling in another village.

Heavy fighting broke out in Belgorod Oblast on the 1nd of last month, and although the Ukrainian government denied direct involvement, organizations claiming to be volunteers such as Russians who opposed the military invasion claimed to be involved, and tensions continue in the region.

While President Zelensky has indicated that he will soon launch a full-scale reverse offensive, it has been pointed out that the Ukrainian military is proceeding with a preparatory operation called "formation operation" to attack Russian logistical support bases.
