The BBC reported that the missiles hit more central areas than the Russian attacks earlier in the war.

Shocking live footage on the BBC earlier showed a rocket scream across the sky before smashing into a building.

A spokesman for the state emergency services told the public broadcaster Suspilne that several explosions had rocked the Ukrainian capital, causing deaths and injuries.

Kyiv Mayor Vitalii Klitschko reported explosions in the Shevchenko district, a large area in central Kyiv that includes the historic old town as well as several government offices.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian officials reported that one of the rockets fell on Vladimirsky Street near Zelenskyy’s office.

Lesia Vasylenko, a member of the Ukrainian Parliament, posted a photo on Twitter showing that at least one explosion occurred near the main building of Kyiv National University in central Kyiv.

Emergency services in Kyiv said the number of victims was unknown.

Rescuers work in different places in the city.

The blasts are the first in months in the capital as the focus of the war has shifted to Ukraine’s eastern regions.

The blasts follow night attacks in Dnipro and Zaporizhia.

And they come just a day after President Vladimir Putin accused Ukraine of “terrorism” following the Crimean bridge explosion.

The 12-mile Kerch Bridge was badly damaged after a truck reportedly exploded, killing three people.

The bridge’s humiliating explosion has prompted angry Russian officials to call for strikes in major cities.

Western officials believe the Russian leader will now seek revenge for the blast and fear it may even go nuclear.
