Ukraine has been hit by dozens of Russian missile strikes, with Kyiv seeing the most intense barrage in months.
At least one person was killed and six people, including a young girl of seven, were injured when an apartment building in Kiev was destroyed.
The Kyiv region reportedly saw 14 missile strikes on Sunday, although the attacks were much more extensive than just the city.
Other locations were the north eastern Kharkiv region and the central city of Cherkasy, where one person perished.
The attacks took place as the G7 leaders’ three-day summit in southern Germany’s Bavaria region got underway, with the conflict in Ukraine taking canter stage.
They are anticipated to pledge additional military assistance to Kiev and ratchet up the pressure on Moscow.
Just prior to the summit at Schloss Elmau, US President Joe Biden addressed German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, “We have to stay together.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin has been betting on it from the start, that somehow NATO and the G7 would split and… but we haven’t, and we’re not going to.
Therefore, President Biden remarked, “We can’t let this hostility take the form it has and get away with it.”
As some leaders discussed building long term ties with Russia and others emphasized steadfast, enduring support for Ukraine, Western solidarity over the conflict has weakened recently.
Our correspondent continues, “But the G7 leaders gathered in Bavaria were keen to put those divisions to rest.”
In Kyiv, a nine story building’s upper floors were torn away, leaving a sizable bomb crater in the middle of a playground for a preschool.
Russian citizen mother of the injured girl was also extricated from the wreckage and transported to a hospital, according to officials.
The girl allegedly underwent surgery later and was described as being “in stable condition.”
The Tupolev bombers reportedly fired several missiles over the Caspian Sea, some 1,450 kilometres (900 miles) away, according to the Ukrainian military.
And on Saturday, it claimed, Tupolev aircraft flying over Belarus’ neighbour fired Russian missiles.
In the provinces of Chernihiv, north of Kyiv, and Zhytomyr and Lviv, west of the city, high-precision weaponry allegedly targeted Ukrainian army training facilities on Sunday.
It was only 30 kilometres (19 miles) to the Polish border when the Lviv Starychi area was attacked.
