"All the destruction shown by the Kyiv regime in residential areas of the Ukrainian capital is a direct consequence of the fall and self-destruction of anti-aircraft missiles fired by Ukrainian troops," the Russian defence ministry said in a briefing.

It said it carried out strikes on "Ukrainian military command and related Ukrainian energy facilities... all missiles hit exactly the designated targets."
