He said that falling debris hit a heating pipe causing the explosion, but it caused much less damage and losses than if the missile had hit its target in central Kyiv, without clarifying whether anyone was injured or killed in the explosion.
Ukrainian officials reported a powerful explosion in the center of Kyiv, near the Ukrainian Defense Ministry.
The office of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told The Associated Press, Wednesday night, that the explosion was the result of a missile attack.
The officials said it was not immediately clear how much damage the blast had caused, whether there were any casualties, or the exact location of the rocket.
The southern railway station, where the explosion occurred, is one of two stations that make up the main commuter rail complex that thousands have used to flee the war over the past week.
