In a single day, Russia unleashes two large-scale bombings on Ukraine

Russian Armed Forces Launch Devastating Bombings on Ukrainian Cities, Marking Escalation of Conflict

Russian Armed Forces launched two large-scale bombings targeting Ukrainian cities far from the front lines in a single day. On Monday morning, Kyiv experienced a sudden bombardment by the Russian forces deployed in Crimea. Several hypersonic ballistic missiles fired from the illegally annexed peninsula reached the capital, causing damage in three districts. Later in the afternoon, Russia launched ballistic missiles from the Black Sea targeting the cities of Odessa and Kremenchuk, as well as the province of Kirovograd, according to Ukrainian Air Forces.

The speed at which the projectiles reached Kyiv without anti-aircraft alarms being able to warn of danger caused panic among citizens. This marked the third attack on Kyiv in five days and fourth large-scale attack on multiple Ukrainian provinces. Russian and Ukrainian military analysts identified Zircon missiles used for the first time against Kyiv in February as innovative weapon in Russia’s arsenal. The Ukrainian Air Force reported intercepting two of these missiles but at least five explosions were heard indicating serious deficit in anti-aircraft ammunition leading to bursts of anti-aircraft machine gun fire attempting to shoot down missiles.

Ukrainian officials have stressed need for more anti-aircraft defenses to protect cities and save lives. In Odessa, at least two large explosions were reported near Sports Palace resulting injuries and damage to civilian structures while Russia intensified its bombings against Ukrainian targets including power grids and military installations following accusations by President Putin against Ukrainian authorities. Ukraine responded with drone attacks on Russian oil refineries leading to disruptions in fuel production which triggered retaliatory bombings by Russian army against Ukrainian cities and military targets further escalating conflict between both sides engaging strategic attacks and counterattacks.
