Multiple blasts rock Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital

On Monday morning, explosions were heard in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, shortly after an air alarm was triggered. Kiev Mayor Vitali Klitschko issued a warning on Telegram for residents to seek shelter immediately. Russian combat drones had damaged power supplies in the Odessa and Mykolaiv regions of southern Ukraine, causing a partial power outage in Odessa.

The Ukrainian Air Force reported that two ballistic missiles were fired over Kiev, using hypersonic missiles according to US Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink. In the Zaporizhia region, air strikes were also reported, while artillery shelling took place in the Sumy region in eastern Ukraine. The Russian army has been increasing 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 was 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.
