Multiple blasts rock Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital

On Monday morning in Kyiv, several explosions were reported after an air alarm was triggered. Kiev Mayor Vitali Klitschko issued a warning on Telegram for residents to seek immediate shelter. The Ukrainian Air Force reported that two ballistic missiles were fired over Kiev, using hypersonic missiles according to US Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink.

Meanwhile, in the southern regions of Ukraine, Russian combat drones had damaged power supplies in Odessa and Mykolaiv. In Odessa, public transport had to be stopped due to the attacks while a substation in the Mykolaiv region caught fire and resulted in injuries to eleven people, two of whom were seriously hurt. The Ukrainian army shot down eight of nine Russian drones that launched from the Crimean peninsula.

The Russian army has been engaging in increased air strikes against Ukraine’s energy supply, leading to major problems in cities like Charkiw where repairs 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 is officially under investigation.

These events underscore the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia with both sides continuing their military actions that have led to casualties and damage to critical infrastructure. The situation remains volatile as both countries escalate their attacks and defenses in the region.
