Missiles and drones have been launched into Ukraine’s air space as a delegation of African leaders visit the capital Kyiv on a peace mission.
Explosions have been heard in Kyiv, as Ukraine’s military says the capital’s air defence system is at work.
Delegations from seven African countries, including South Africa, Egypt and Senegal are due to meet Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky later today to suggest compromises for a peace deal.
They’re due to visit St Petersburg tomorrow. The air force says that high precision missiles are flying low to the ground, potentially making them more difficult to detect.
