The remnants of the missile fell in Kyiv's Kurenivka district, he wrote, and posted two photos from the scene.

March 14 is the 19th day of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine. The enemy continues to shell Ukrainian settlements.

Ukraine's State Emergency Service reported on March 14 that two people were killed when an artillery shell hit a residential building in the Obolon district in the north of Kyiv.

According to the rescue agency, three more people were hospitalized and another nine were provided with medical assistance at the scene.

The invaders also fired at Kyiv's Antonov factory, Ukraine's main state-owned aerospace concern.

Today, another round of talks are being held between Kyiv and Moscow via a video conference.

Prior to the negotiations, advisor to the chief-of-staff of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Mykhailo Podolyak, said that the sides would focus on preliminary results of earlier agreements on the ceasefire and the withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine.

Following these statements, the U.S. Department of State announced that they "are seeing some signs of a willingness to have real, serious negotiations" on the part of the Kremlin.
