Russia has carried out massive missile attacks on major cities including Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Russia has launched more than 50 missiles targeting important installations.

This has led to power and water shortages across the country, including the capital, Kiev. 80% of Kyiv’s residents are now in dire need of water. About 350,000 apartments have been left without electricity.

According to the Kyiv Post, Ukrainian officials said they detected at least 50 missiles in the sky of Ukraine this morning (Monday). Russia has fired more than 50 cruise missiles with its state-of-the-art Tu-95 and Tu-160 bombers. Since then, Ukraine’s air defense system has destroyed at least two missiles in the sky over Kiev.

Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko reported at least two explosions in Kyiv, Reuters reported. He said that part of the capital has been cut off due to the impact of Russian missiles. Besides, the water supply system is also being obstructed, he said. Klitschko said that due to the damage of the electricity installation in the missile attack, the electricity supply has been stopped in about 350,000 apartments.

Ukrainian citizens took shelter in underground shelters during the attack.

The Russian attack has caused power and water shortages in various Ukrainian cities, Ukrainian officials said. Local authorities said the attack hit an important facility in the northeastern city of Kharkiv. Moscow carried out these attacks a day after Ukraine launched a drone attack on the Russian Navy’s Black Sea fleet in Crimea.

Missile attacks were also reported in the Vinnytsia region of central Ukraine today. Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhia in the southeast and Lviv in the west were also attacked.

Ukraine’s air force spokesman Yuriy Ihnat told Ukrainian state television that Russia used its own strategic bombers to carry out the attack.
