“Several explosions have occurred in the Darnytskyi and Dniprovskyi districts of the capital Kiev,” Klitschko wrote on the Telegram messaging app.
At least one person has been hospitalized but no deaths have been reported as of early Sunday morning, Klitschko added.

Reuters witnesses said they saw smoke in Kiev rising after the series of explosions.
The mayor of the historic town of Brovary, about 20km from central Kiev, has urged people to stay indoors because of reports of a smell of soot coming from the smoke.

Air raid sirens still regularly disrupt life in Kiev, but there have been no major attacks on the city in the past few weeks.
