Five Russian missiles hit kyiv as United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres ended his visit to the Ukrainian capital on Thursday, President Volodymyr Zelensky said. The strike was an apparent show of force by the Kremlin towards the UN chief, who met with Zelensky and called the war “a 21st century absurdity”. Some normalcy had also returned to Kyiv, where the fighting died down after Russian forces withdrew from its suburbs about a month ago.
