Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Ukraine war: Explosions rock Kyiv central district” – below is their description.
Several explosions were heard in the Shevchenkivskiy district of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, Mayor Vitali Klitschko has said on the Telegram messaging app.
There was no immediate information on the cause of the explosions.
“Ambulance crews and rescuers dispatched to the scene,” Klitschko said. “There are people under the rubble. Some residents were evacuated, two victims were hospitalized,” he added.
The first Russian strike in the capital in nearly three weeks was aimed to “intimidate Ukrainians… at the approach of the NATO summit” to be held in Madrid from June 28-30, said the city’s mayor Vitali Klitschko, who visited the scene of the explosion.
