According to city mayor Vitali Klitschko, two residential buildings in central Kyiv were hit during a Russian missile strike on the Ukrainian capital on Tuesday.

He said on the Telegram messaging app that rescue workers were on the scene and that several missiles had been shot down, but he didn’t say how many people were killed.

Flames poured out of a small apartment block in footage posted on social media by the deputy head of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s office.

According to a Reuters correspondent who arrived on the scene shortly after the attack, about 15 distraught residents had gathered around the smoldering side of the five-story apartment building.

Officials advised residents to seek shelter in case of further attacks.

The missile strike on Kyiv followed air raid warnings across Ukraine hours after Zelenskiy delivered a video address to leaders of the Group of 20 nations who are meeting in Bali.

“Russia responds to @Zelenskiy’s powerful speech at #G20 with a new missile attack. Does anyone seriously think that the Kremlin really wants peace? It wants obedience. But at the end of the day, terrorists always lose,” Andriy Yermak, chief of the presidential staff, wrote on Twitter.

Russia has stepped up missile strikes on Ukraine in recent weeks, with missiles damaging energy infrastructure as well as residential buildings.
