Russia attack Kyiv again – level 1

30-11-2023 07:00

A big attack from Russia hurts Kyiv on November 25. The attack lasts six hours. Five people get hurt.

It happens on a day when people remember the Holodomor famine in 1932-33. Many people die at that time. The attack starts in the early hours. But more drones come later. Officials say that Russia attacks 911 times this week. 19 people die, and 84 people get hurt.

Ukraine’s military says that they shoot down 74 drones. Trucks with guns already help stop 40% of all Russian drones.

Difficult words: famine (a long time when people have nothing to eat), drone (a small flying device), military (soldiers).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What measures has Ukraine's military taken to strengthen its defense against similar attacks in the future?
