Ukraine has said it shot down a cruise missile launched at Kyiv on Sunday from neighboring Belarus.
"Ukrainian Air Force shot down a cruise missile launched at the capital of Ukraine, Kyiv, by a TU-22 bomber from the territory of Belarus. This is another war crime committed against Ukraine and its people," Oleg Nikolenko, spokesperson for Ukraine's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a tweet Sunday.
Belarus has played an important role in Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops invaded through the Belarus border with support from Belarus' government, according to Ukrainian officials, and the Biden administration has sanctioned nine Belarusian defense firms for their support of the invasion.
