Russian missiles strike Kyiv, mayor says

Russian missiles rained down on Kyiv on Tuesday, striking at least three residential buildings while several others were shot down by Ukraine’s air defense, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko wrote in a Telegram post.

The strikes come on the back of Ukraine’s triumphant recapture of the city of Kherson, a major setback for Moscow, and as world leaders gathered in Indonesia for the G20 summit.

“Medics and rescuers at the scene of the hits,” Klitschko added in the post, which initially confirmed two residential buildings had been struck.

At least one person was found dead in the buildings that were hit, with search and rescue operations ongoing, he confirmed in a post later Tuesday.
