MOSCOW: Russia’s defence ministry said Sunday it struck a military plant outside Kyiv, as Moscow intensifies its attacks on the Ukrainian capital.
“During the night, a high-precision air-launched missile destroyed an ammunition factory near the Brovary settlement in the Kyiv region,” the ministry said in a Telegram statement.
Mayor Brovary Igor Sapozhko said “some infrastructure objects were hit” in the early hours of Sunday.
An AFP reporter in Brovary saw no signs of damage, smoke or fire.
Russia has carried out numerous attacks on military factories in and around Kyiv in recent days.
Last month, Russia said it would withdraw its troops from northern Ukraine – including areas around the capital – to focus on control of the eastern Donbass region.
