On the morning of March 25, Russia targeted Kyiv with two ballistic missiles, which were successfully shot down by Ukrainian defenders. Due to the fallen debris, civil infrastructure has been damaged, including the Mykhailo Boichuk Kyiv State Academy of Decorative and Applied Arts and Design. At least ten people were injured, with two victims being hospitalized, according to the Kyiv City Military Administration.

In the Pecherskyi district of the capital, an educational institution was affected due to the fallen fragments of downed Russian missiles. In the Mykhailo Boichuk Kyiv State Academy of Decorative and Applied Arts and Design, the central part of the building was hit. In particular, the gym, congress hall, and exhibition center were completely destroyed. Also, the premises of the faculties and the academy auditorium were severely damaged.

According to preliminary information, the Head of the Academy’s laboratory was injured and hospitalized.

“The air raid alarm signal was activated a few seconds before the first explosions, so students and teachers did not have time to go down to the shelter quickly. Fortunately, the debris fell into the neighboring premises, where there were no people,” stated Rostyslav Karandieiev, Temporary Acting Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine.

According to Karandieiev, the scale of the destruction will be assessed as soon as possible to begin further emergency work on the destroyed objects.

In total, due to the Russian missile attack on Kyiv, four city districts were affected: Pecherskyi, Solomianskyi, Holosiivskyi, and Darnytskyi. In particular, two private houses were damaged in the Solomianskyi district. In the Darnytskyi district, debris from a downed missile fell on the territory of a private building. Missile fragments were also found in the forest area in the Holosiivskyi district.
