The blasts followed air raid warnings across Ukraine hours after President Volodymyr Zelenskyy delivered a video address to leaders of the Group of 20 nations who are meeting in Bali.

“Russia responds to @Zelenskyy’s powerful speech at #G20 with a new missile attack. Does anyone seriously think that the Kremlin really wants peace? It wants obedience. But at the end of the day, terrorists always lose,” Andriy Yermak, chief of the presidential staff, wrote on Twitter.
