To mediate the Russian invasion of Ukraine, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres traveled to Ukraine’s capital Kiiw to meet with President Zelensky. Russia fired missiles at Kiiu, and President Zelensky responded by saying it was “an insult to the United Nations”.

Missiles drop in downtown Kiiwu.
The streets were full of the debris of the explosion, and the buildings that were attacked were engulfed in flames.
On the evening of the 28th local time, Russian troops fired five missiles towards the Ukraine capital, Kiiu.
This came shortly after UN Secretary-General Guterres had a meeting with Ukrainian President Zelensky in Kiiu.
The bombardment destroyed the lower floors of a 25-story apartment building and set fires, injuring at least 10 residents.

The UN delegation was not injured.
But UN Secretary-General Guterres said he was “shocked” by the attack on the Sacred City.
President Zelensky strongly criticized Russia.
[볼로디미르 젤렌스키/우크라이나 대통령 : 이번 공격은 러시아 지도부의 국제기구에 대한 태도를 보여줍니다. 유엔과 유엔이 대표하는 모든 걸 모욕하려는 태도 말입니다.]
Secretary-General Guterres held a press conference on the same day, calling for a ceasefire and opening an evacuation route for civilians.
He also visited Bucha, Irfin and Borodanka outside Kiiu, where the massacre of civilians had previously taken place, and condemned war crimes.
Meanwhile, International Atomic Energy Agency director-general Rafael Grossi said they were investigating allegations that Russian forces fired missiles over nuclear power plants in southern Ukraine.
