Massive wave of missile attacks reported across Ukraine

President Zelensky confirmed that multiple cities across the nation were targeted by Russian strikes.

Multiple missile strikes targeted Ukrainian cities all across the country on Monday morning, according to local officials and media, which attributed the attacks to Russia. This comes two days after a bomb damaged the strategic Crimean Bridge – which Moscow called a Ukrainian terrorist attack.

The office of Valery Zaluzhny, the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian armed forces, reported they had detected at least 75 missiles and claimed they had intercepted 41.

President Vladimir Zelensky confirmed the attacks throughout the country in a video address, saying numerous parts of Ukraine had come under fire, and claimed that Russia was targeting the energy infrastructure. “They want panic and chaos,” he said.

Local officials in Lviv, Kharkov, and Odessa also reported that their cities came under fire.

In Kiev, damage from the strikes was reported near the headquarters of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), which is located in the government area of the capital. City officials halted operations of the metro system, and the stations are now being used as shelters for civilians.

The head of Lviv Region, Maksim Kozitsky, reported that elements of the western province’s energy infrastructure came under attack.

Vitaly Kim, who heads the southern Nikolaev Region which borders Russia’s Kherson Region, reported dozens of projectiles and a number of kamikaze drones coming from Russian troops. He claimed that Moscow was targeting “critical infrastructure” throughout the country.

With similar accounts coming in from many parts of the country, senior Ukrainian officials have expressed determination to fight Russia. “Our courage will never be destroyed by terrorists’ missiles, even when they hit the heart of our capital,” Defense Minister Aleksey Reznikov tweeted, also claiming that Russia’s future is that of “a globally despised rogue terrorist state.”

The strikes on Monday were launched two days after Russia’s Crimean Bridge was damaged by a powerful explosion, which Moscow blamed on the Ukrainian special services. Senior Russian officials described the plot – which apparently involved sneaking explosives into a cargo truck and detonating it as it crossed the bridge between Crimea and mainland Russia – as a terrorist attack on critical civilian infrastructure.

Officials in Kiev previously claimed that the bridge was a legitimate military target and have called for its destruction.

  1. Ukraine had plenty of time to settle this issue but the US wanted war and have stated they are prepared to fight to the last Ukrainian. Zelensky was ready to talk with Putin but Boris Johnson hurried to Kiev to have a little talk with him and Zelensky changed his tune. Pelosi has visited Ukraine, so has Ursula Von der Leyen and many other warmongers all making sure that what these deaths head creatures have started will continue.
    The US blew up Nordstream 1 and 2 destroying billions of dollars of Russian owned infrastructure, then blew up the Kerch bridge.
    Now Russia retaliates and everyone goes ‘Ooh that’s not fair’. The propaganda war continues but everyone knows what is really going on now.

  2. Russia has to clean up the neonazis sooner. They are threat to humanity. Eugenics and neo-nazis are plotting together, and these forces are not just restricted Ukraine. Few hundred Ukranians were allowed in NZ and I am sure, there are neonazis among them. Our intel should keep an eye on all Ukranians living in NZ to weed out the neo-nazi elements. If not, we will be witnessing their dirty work in NZ in the coming years.
