KYIV, Ukraine — Strikes on residential areas in Kyiv killed at least two people, emergency services say, as Russian troops intensified their attacks on the Ukrainian capital.

Two bodies are pulled from the rubble after a strike on a 16-story building in the Sviatoshynsky district, the emergency service says in a Facebook post, adding that 27 people had been rescued from the site.

Another residential building in the Podilsk area also came under attack, it says.

“A fire started on the first five floors of a ten-story residential building on Mostytska street as a result of ammunition fire,” it says.
