Fifteen URCS volunteers work to eliminate consequences of drone attack on Kyiv

Fifteen volunteers of the Ukrainian Red Cross Society (URCS) worked to eliminate the consequences of a night attack by Russian drones on Kyiv.

"Last night, Russia launched its third air strike on the capital in the last week. The wreckage of one of the drones hit a multi-storey building in Solomyansky district of Kyiv, resulting in a fire on several upper floors ... The crew of the rapid response unit of the National Committee of the Ukrainian Red Cross, in coordination with the Main Directorate of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine in Kyiv, went to the scene of the emergency," the URCS reported on Facebook on Friday.

Volunteers toured the apartments of residents affected by the falling debris of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

URCS workers also said that two volunteers of the rapid response unit were on duty at the crash site of the drone wreckage, where a fire broke out in a two-story private house in Darnytsky district of the capital to provide prompt assistance to victims if they were found.

"In total, 15 volunteers and seven units of transport were involved in the response," the URCS noted.

As reported, as a result of shelling by UAV debris, the 26th floor of a house in Solomyansky district was damaged, resulting in a fire, and one victim was hospitalized.
