Russia fires ballistic missile in Kyiv amidst UN Secretary Antonio Guterres visit.

Russian strikes slammed into Kyiv on Thursday evening as UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was visiting, in the first such bombardment of Ukraine’s capital since mid-April, the mayor said.

There was no immediate information about casualties from the strikes, which hit a western part of the city centre, but a close aide to the UN chief sent a message to journalists confirming they were safe.

Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko said there had been ‘two hits in the Shevchenkovsky district’ in a post on Telegram and said they were clarifying details about casualties.
