Several loud explosions could be heard in the Ukrainian capital on Tuesday while the city was under a 35-hour curfew.
One of the blasts was so strong it set off car alarms in the city center, a CNN team witnessed.
Ukrainian interior ministry advisor Anton Gerashchenko said Ukrainian air defenses had engaged and destroyed a Russia Tochka-U missile and that remains of the projectile had fallen in the Dniper river.
Shelling and small arms fire could also be heard intermittently over the past couple of hours.
Kyiv is currently under a curfew announced by the city’s mayor, Vitali Klitschko on Monday. In a statement on Telegram, Klitschko said the curfew would begin Monday at 8:00 p.m and last until 7:00am on Wednesday.
