Ukraine television tower hit in attack, five killed

An attack by Russian forces on a television tower a couple of miles from central Kyiv has killed five people and wounded five others, Ukrainian emergency services have said in a statement.

Officials said a TV control room and a power substation were hit, and at least some Ukrainian channels briefly stopped broadcasting.

Al Jazeera reported the attack was preceded by a warning by the Russian defence ministry about two hours prior.

The ministry warned Kyiv residents living near installations possibly used for military intelligence purposes to evacuate.
