The city administration said on its Telegram channel that “shrapnel from a drone damaged two administrative buildings in the Shevchenkivsky district, in the center of the capital.”
It was not immediately clear if there were any injuries from the explosions.
Recently, Ukraine’s energy infrastructure was hit by Russian missile attacks, but Moscow says it targets “military, not civilian” infrastructure.
On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine, which was followed by angry international reactions and the imposition of “tough” economic and financial sanctions on Moscow.
