Russia hit another military factory a day after Moscow warned it would renew attacks following two weeks of relative calm in the Ukrainian capital.
It was reported that smoke rose from the Darnyrsky district in the southeast of the capital after what Moscow said were “high-precision long-range” strikes on the armaments plant.
According to Kyiv major, Vitali Klitschko said authorities were still determining whether anyone had been killed or injured in the attack.
Also, heavy police and military presence was deployed around the factory, the day after a similar strike on a plant that produced the Neptune missiles Kyiv and Washington say sunk Russia’s Black Sea naval flagship on Thursday.
Russia, which used sea-based long-range missiles to hit the Vizar plant says that the Moskva missile cruiser sank while being towed back to port after ammunition exploded on board.
However, amid escalating sanctions since President Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine on February 24, Russia on Saturday said it was banning entry to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and several other top UK officials.
