Russian artillery has struck the Antonov factory in Kyiv, the municipal government said in a message on the Telegram messaging service on March 14.

Antonov is a state-owned aerospace and defense concern, famous for producing the AN-225 Mriya aircraft, the largest in the world prior to its destruction by Russian shelling.

Earlier, Russians shells are reported to have damaged a residential high-rise in Kyiv’s Obolon district in the north of the city, partially destroying the building and setting several apartments on third and fourth floors ablaze.
