Day 14 Year 2 (cont'd)
I decided to run during the missile alert. To be on the safe side, I didn’t listen to music. About halfway on the leg from Mist Metro Bridge to Paton Bridge there was a very loud explosion. Sounded like a Jdam. Plumes of black smoke floated over the Dnipro.
The time of impact was 05.50, give or take a couple of seconds. We know what was hit, but we have to keep the info hush hush for now.
Another exploding object landed in Kyiv’s Svyatoshinsky District and incinerated several cars. Prob a Shakhed drone.
We recall almost being blown to smithereens by a Kh-101 on Day 230, October 10, 2022.
Glad you're okay!
