Russia attacked Ukraine with 32 drones overnight into Sunday, Kyiv military chiefs reported, most aimed around the capital. Air defenses shot down 25 of them, without accounting for the remaining seven.

The aerial assault comes as national leaders call for extra Western support to repel the Russian invasion.

The military’s general staff said, "the occupiers attacked Ukraine with 32 kamikaze drones... of which 25 were destroyed by Ukrainian air defense forces." "The Russian occupiers directed most of the attack UAVs to the Kyiv region."

"Drones entered the capital from different directions," Sergiy Popko, head of the Kyiv City Military Administration, wrote on Telegram.

Debris fell in several districts, damaging an apartment in a building, as well as road surfaces and power lines, injuring one person. Kyiv destroyed over 20 drones and missiles in a significant strike on the capital last month.

Senior Ukrainian officials painted a grim picture of a country at war, held back by allies who failed to grasp the scale and urgency of the crisis.

Defense Minister Rustem Umerov called for more military equipment. "We need more heavy weapons today."

President Volodymyr Zelensky said slow delivery of Western weapons hampered the counteroffensive against Russian positions.

Deputy Intelligence Chief Vadym Skibitsky estimated Russia had more than 420,000 soldiers in eastern and southern Ukraine. Intelligence chief Kyrylo Budanov said Ukrainian strikes on Russia mainly targeted military-industrial complex enterprises.

Progress on setting up an international tribunal to try Russia’s leaders and on transferring frozen Russian assets has been limited. Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said the G7 favored a hybrid tribunal, an unacceptable option for Kyiv.

Ukrainian officials argue for an international court resembling the post-World War II Nuremberg tribunal. Western sanctions have frozen around 300 billion euros ($320 billion) of Central Bank of Russia foreign exchange reserves worldwide since Moscow’s invasion in February 2022.
