The explosions in Kyiv on the morning of November 11 were related to the work of Air defense. Russia launched ballistic missiles towards the capital. This was reported by Yurii Ihnat, the spokesperson for the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, during a telethon, APA reports citing RBC-Ukraine.

"The preliminary information is that it was still ballistic. Explosions occurred in Kyiv. There is still no information from the local administration and the police about where exactly, maybe there are some fragments or damage. We are waiting for information, but the air defense worked. Kyiv's air defense worked on ballistic missiles," he said.

Ihnat added that the Air Command Center will provide information about the number of targets and their type.

The spokesperson also explained that an air raid alert was announced in Kyiv after the explosions because the occupiers used ballistic missiles.

"Ballistic missiles travel extremely fast. They are not as noticeable by radar as cruise missiles. Ballistic missiles can include the S-300, S-400, Iskander-M, and Kinzhal missiles," explained Ihnat.

He suggested that the occupiers could have launched ballistic missiles from border areas near Kyiv, Chernihiv, or Sumy regions.
