An explosion was heard in the city of Zaporizhzhia, in southern Ukraine, on Monday morning, Ukrainian public broadcaster Suspilne reported as the Ukrainian Air Force Command warned of a missile strike.
After the air raid alert was declared in the Zaporizhzhia region, the military warned of a threat of a ballistic missile strike.
Unverified reports suggested Iskander-M ballistic missiles had been launched from the Russian-annexed Crimea.
Yurii Malashko, the head of the Zaporizhzhia regional military administration, later confirmed that a ballistic missile had destroyed a social infrastructure facility in the Zaporizhzhia district, and rescuers were working.
No casualties have so far been confirmed, Mr Malashko added.
Earlier on Monday, Russia launched a missile attack on the Odesa region, in southern Ukraine, in a yet another attempt at destroying Ukraine’s grain and port infrastructure.
