Kyiv confirms taking down Russian aircraft

Kyiv: Advisor to the Interior Minister of Ukraine Anton Herashchenko confirmed that Ukrainian forces shot down an enemy aircraft over the capital which then crashed into a residential building and set it on fire.

However, the authorities could not confirm whether the aircraft was carrying anyone or not.

They did confirm that eight people were injured when the object crashed into the building.

Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that the capital had come under missile attack.

In a tweet, the foreign minister compared the attacks by Russia on Kyiv to those done by Nazi Germany.

Sirens started blaring early on Friday, which Herashchenko said were sounds of the air defence of Ukraine firing at Russian aircraft and missiles.
