The BBC reported the missiles have hit more central areas than Russian strikes earlier in the war.

Shocking live footage on the BBC earlier showed a missile scream across the sky before smashing into a building.

The blasts are the first in the capital for months as the focus of the war has shifted to Eastern regions of Ukraine.

The blasts follow overnight attacks in Dnipro and Zaporizhzhia.

And they come just a day after President Vladimir Putin accused Ukraine of “terrorism” after the Crimean Bridge blast.

The 12-mile long Kerch Bridge was badly damaged after a truck reportedly exploded, killing three people.
