An official with the Ukrainian interior ministry says a Russian aircraft has been shot down over the Darnytskyi district of Kyiv.
Anton Gerashchenko says the jet crashed near a house at 7a Koshytsia Street.
The unconfirmed claim follows reports of a couple of explosion earlier in the Ukrainian capital.
Similar sounds were heard yesterday when, according to Ukrainian officials, a military base in Brovary, a town near Kyiv, was hit by Russian cruise missiles, leaving six people dead. END
