Shelling hit residential houses and a shopping district in Kyiv‘s Podil district late on Sunday, killing at least four people, city authorities said.

“According to the information we have at the moment, several homes and one of the shopping centers [were hit],” city mayor Vitali Klitschko said on his Telegram channel.

He said rescue teams were putting out a large fire at the shopping center, while other details are still to be confirmed. The Kyiv department of the state emergency service said four people had been killed.
