Multiple blasts rock Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital

Russian Attacks cause chaos in Ukraine: A look at the latest developments

On Monday morning, explosions were heard in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, just after an air alarm was triggered. Kiev Mayor Vitali Klitschko issued an immediate warning on Telegram for residents to seek shelter. Russian combat drones had caused a partial power outage in Odessa by damaging power supplies in the region. According to the Ukrainian Air Force, two ballistic missiles were fired over Kiev, using hypersonic missiles, as confirmed by US Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink.

Debris from a rocket damaged a residential building in Kiev while public transport in Odessa had to be stopped due to the attacks. In Mykolaiv, a substation was damaged and caught fire, resulting in injuries to eleven people, two of whom were seriously hurt. The Ukrainian army shot down eight of nine Russian drones that launched from the Crimean peninsula. Air strikes were also reported on the Zaporizhia region and artillery shelling in the Sumy region in eastern Ukraine.

The Russian army has intensified its air strikes against Ukraine’s energy supply, leading to major problems in cities like Charkiw. Repairs to the network in Charkiw are expected to take about a week. In Russia, a fire at the Novocherkassk power and thermal power plant was attributed to a Ukrainian drone attack, although the cause is officially under investigation. Ukraine has been defending against a Russian invasion for over two years and has expanded its use of drones to target the Russian oil industry.

These events highlight the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, with both sides engaging in military actions that have led to casualties and damage to critical infrastructure. The situation remains volatile as both countries continue to escalate their attacks and defenses in the region.
