Germany says no diplomatic staff was hurt in the attack as the building has not been used since late February

The building housing Germany’s consulate in Kiev was damaged during a massive missile strike on the Ukrainian capital carried out by the Russian military on Monday, Germany’s Foreign Ministry has stated. However, according to officials in Berlin, no diplomatic personnel was hurt in the attack as the building has not been in use since the start of Russia’s offensive in late February.

The ministry posted a tweet reading: “A building in #Kyiv, which also houses the German visa office, was damaged by rocket fire this morning.” The message went on to clarify that the office has not been used by German diplomats for months.

Our colleagues at the Embassy in Kyiv are well,” the tweet concludes.

On the same day, Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht announced plans to supply Ukraine with a total of four IRIS-T SLM air defense system units.

According to Lambrecht, one of the units will arrive in the country in the near future, with three more expected to be shipped next year.

On Monday morning, Russia pounded multiple cities across Ukraine with dozens of missiles. According to Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmigal, at least 11 key infrastructure sites were hit, causing blackouts.
