Kyiv: Russian missile hits a gas pipeline

This was reported by several Ukrainian news agencies, and the explosion could also be heard and seen on videos on social media. It may have been a Russian missile that was fired at the Ukrainian defenses but was intercepted on its way. It is not currently clear whether people were killed in the explosion.

An Interior Ministry spokesman said the missile hit a gas pipeline near the train station. So parts of the city have to adapt to having to live without heating. “The station building has stopped and slightly damaged,” the state-owned railway company Ukrzaleznytsia said.
