Explosions rock Ukraine’s capital Kyiv, injuring 1 person

Berlin/Moscow, Jun 5 (EFE).- Several explosions rocked areas of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv on Sunday, injuring at least one person, the city’s mayor Vitali Klitschko and the armed forces said.

The blasts occurred in the eastern districts of Darnytsia and Dniprovskiy.

Klitschko said that one person was hospitalized but that no fatalities were reported as a result of the explosions.

The suburb of Brovary was also hit by an explosion, although the scale of the damage was not immediately clear.

Russia claimed that it had struck tanks and armored vehicles supplied to Kyiv by eastern European nations.

“High-precision, long-range missiles fired by the Russian Aerospace Forces on the outskirts of Kyiv destroyed T-72 tanks supplied by eastern European countries and other armored vehicles that were in hangars,” the Russian defense ministry said on Sunday.

Columns of black smoke could be seen rising above the affected areas of the capital.

The explosions occurred after a period of relative peace in Kyiv following Russia’s withdrawal from the region as the invading nation shifted its focus to the eastern Donbas area. EFE
