Russian invasion: Ukraine fired with rockets - explosions also in Kyiv

On Monday, at the beginning of the new week, Russia again fired rockets at numerous cities in Ukraine. There was an air alert across the country, and the Ukrainian anti-aircraft defense was active, according to the local authorities. Explosions could also be heard in the capital Kyiv, in Kharkiv and Zaporizhia and in the west of the country. It was said that some important infrastructure had been hit.

Kiev Mayor Vitali Klitschko announced that the capital's electricity and water supply had partially failed. Around 350,000 apartments are without electricity. The municipal services are doing everything to restore the supply. Ukrainian Railways said the power outage was affecting local traffic and causing train delays.

The authorities called on people to get to safety in bunkers and other rooms. The Russian war of aggression against the neighboring country has already lasted 250 days this Monday. The Ukrainian Air Force said in the morning that 44 of the more than 50 missiles launched by Russian bombers had been shot down.

According to the first official information, the Russian troops - as on previous Mondays - launched dozens of rocket attacks in the morning rush hour. Recently, there have always been deaths and injuries. Nothing was initially known about new victims in the morning.

Energy infrastructure under attack

Russia had declared that it was particularly targeting the neighboring country's energy infrastructure. Ukraine speaks of "energy terror" with the aim of plunging people into darkness, cold and fear and thus driving them to flee to the EU.

Russia is continuing its attacks on civilian infrastructure, the head of the Ukrainian Presidential Office, Andriy Yermak, said in his blog on the Telegram news channel. "We will persevere. And this disgrace will cost entire generations of Russians dearly," he announced. At the same time, he called for more weapons and new sanctions against Russia from the West.
