Even after striking Kiev during Guterres’ visit, Russia has continued its attack in eastern and southern Ukraine.

Russia resumed its onslaught in Ukraine’s eastern and southern areas on Friday, a day after shelling Kiev during UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ visit.

The first attack in the capital since mid-April comes after UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres traveled to Bucha and other communities on the outskirts of Kyiv, where he urged Moscow to “cooperate” with the International Criminal Court in order to “determine culpability.”

“Five missiles” were fired at Kyiv, according to Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelensky. These actions “speak a lot about the Russian leadership’s efforts to disgrace the United Nations and everything it stands for,” he continued.

As police and rescuers attempted to calm the situation, AFP journalists witnessed a burning structure with a strong cloud of black smoke emerging through damaged windows. Ten individuals were hurt in the incident, according to emergency services.

Guterres was “surprised” but “unharmed,” according to a UN spokesperson, Saviano Abreu, who denounced the fact that “this happened close where we were.”

Andriy Yermak, the chairman of Ukraine’s presidential cabinet, has asked for Russia’s veto power in the UN Security Council to be revoked.

Guterres spoke with Zelensky after arriving in Ukraine on Thursday following a visit to Moscow and expressed sorrow that the Security Council had not been able to prevent or halt Russia’s conflict, which began on February 24.

Just hours before the attack in Kyiv, US Vice President Joe Biden requested Congress for an extra $33 billion in funding to help Ukraine fight Russian “atrocities and aggression.”
