Two Russian missiles hit the Shevchenkivsky district of the Ukrainian capital at around 2000 Kyiv time, the city’s mayor, Vitali Klitschko said in a Telegram post on April 28.

“Friends! Tonight, the enemy delivered missile strikes on Kyiv,” said Klitschko.

“Two hits in Shevchenkivsky district; emergency services are on site; casualty reports are being verified.”

Earlier, Ukrainian media reported eyewitness accounts of two powerful explosions in Kyiv. Svitlana Vodolaha, a spokesperson for the State Emergency Service, told Ukrainian public broadcaster Suspilne that emergency service workers are en route to the site of the explosions.

Hromadske.Ua has reported missiles hit an object and a nearby residential building, also citing Vodolaha.

Russians attacked Kyiv first time in weeks right on the same day UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was speaking to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during his visit to the Ukrainian capital.
