Russia launched 100 missiles at Ukraine today, claims officialtext_fields
Kyiv: An Ukrainian air force spokesperson said Russia launched around 100 missiles targeting the country's energy infrastructure on Tuesday. The attack caused power outages and forced shutdowns across Ukraine.
"Around 100 missiles have already been launched. The occupiers surpassed October 10, when they launched 84 missiles," said Yuri Ignat on TV. "Critical infrastructure facilities are their primary target. Some missiles were shot down, but information on that needs to be clarified," he added.
Officials said the fresh bombardment struck residential buildings in Kyiv and affected the joy of liberating the city of Kherson. Two cities - Lviv in the West and Kharkiv in the East - were also attacked. Kyiv's mayor Vitali Klitschko said air raid sirens were sounding all across Ukraine and at least half of the population was left with no power.
The deputy head of the president's office, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, released a video of a five-story residential building on fire and said citizens should stay in shelters. He also said the missiles were fired by Russian forces. He also described the situation as "critical" and "extremely difficult" and accused Russia of carrying out "another planned attack on energy infrastructure facilities."
Today, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed world leaders at the G20 Summit in Indonesia and said now is the time to stop Russia's war under a peace plan he is proposing, reported Reuters.
