[Kiev (Kyiv) 28th Reuters]–According to Ukrainian officials, Russia launched two missiles at the capital city of Kiev (Kyiv), which UN Secretary-General António Guterres is visiting on the evening of the 28th.

One of them hit the lower floors of a private house, injuring at least three people.

The explosion occurred after Mr. Guterres had finished a meeting with Ukrainian President Zelensky. “I was shocked by the attack on Kyiv, not because I am here, but because Kyiv is a sacred place for both the Ukrainian and Russians,” Guterres told the Portuguese broadcaster RTP. Said.

At the meeting between Mr. Guterres and Mr. Zelensky, the realization of the evacuation of civilians from the Azovstal ironworks in Mariupol, southern Ukraine was on the agenda. Guterres has stated that the United Nations will “do its best” to evacuate civilians.

Hundreds of Ukrainian soldiers are standing up and resisting the steelworks, which are besieged by Russian troops, and civilians are also stuck.

According to Kirilenko, the governor of Southeastern Donetsk Oblast, Russia is blocking the evacuation of injured soldiers from the steelworks and also hindering efforts to secure a humanitarian corridor.

Under these circumstances, US President Joe Biden asked Congress on the 28th to allocate an additional $ 33 billion to support Ukraine. The additional budget includes over $ 20 billion in military assistance, $ 8.5 billion in direct financial assistance, and $ 3 billion in humanitarian and food assistance.

In response, President Zelensky thanked the American people and President Biden. He said in a video speech that he “wants Congress to approve this request promptly.”
