Government Adviser says a missile attack was carried out on the Ukrainian capital. As reported by CNN, an adviser to the Ukrainian Foreign Minister told reporters that the capital was under attack.
“Terrible Russian missile attack on Kyiv. The last time our capital had such an experience was in 1941, when Nazi Germany invaded. Ukraine has defeated that evil and will defeat it again. Stop Putin. Isolation of Russia is necessary. Destroy all connections. Get Russia out of everything,” Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleva wrote on Twitter.
Reportedly, a Russian plane that crashed in Kyiv hit a 9-storey residential building. There are likely to be huge casualties among the civilian population.
The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine said after 04:00 Kyiv time, the Ukrainian air defense system destroyed “two deadly gifts” from Russia.
