An airport in the city of Dnipro, in central Ukraine, was destroyed on Sunday, according to the regional governor.
Writing on Telegram, Valentyn Reznichenko said missiles had hit the airport and surrounding infrastructure.
In a separate incident, the Russian defence ministry said it had destroyed four S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems yesterday which were reportedly concealed in a hangar on the outskirts of the city.
25 troops were caught up in the attack, Russia said.

The BBC can’t verify these claims, but if true, it would be a significant blow to Ukraine, which would have hoped to use such a system to bolster its air defences.
Dnipro has become a logistics hub for supplies and medical care. It bridges eastern and western Ukraine, with multiple links over the Dnieper River, meaning that it could be a potential target for Russian forces as they turn their attention on the east.
