Kyiv mayor announces explosions in the center of the Ukrainian capital

On Wednesday, the Ukrainian authorities announced several explosions in the center of the capital, Kyiv, in light of the continued Russian attacks on the country’s infrastructure.

Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko wrote, in a post on Telegram, that several explosions occurred in the central district of the capital, which includes several government buildings, according to the Associated Press.

Klitschko explained that municipality teams rushed to the scene of the explosions.

The agency quoted unnamed local officials as saying that Iranian-made drones were used in the attack.

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.
