Numerous Explosions Rock Kyiv, the Ukrainian Capital

On Monday morning, several explosions were heard in Kyiv. Shortly before the explosions, an air alarm was triggered, prompting Kiev Mayor Vitali Klitschko to instruct residents to go to shelters immediately. The Ukrainian Air Force reported that two ballistic missiles were fired over Kiev, using hypersonic missiles according to US Ambassador Bridget Brink. Debris from a rocket damaged a residential building in Kiev.

Russian combat drones had damaged power supplies in the Odessa and Mykolaiv regions of southern Ukraine, leading to a partial power outage in Odessa. In the Mykolaiv region, a substation was damaged and caught fire due to a drone strike. Eleven people were injured, two seriously. The Ukrainian army shot down eight out of nine Russian drones that had taken off from the Crimean peninsula. There were also air strikes and artillery shelling in other regions, including the Zaporizhia and Sumy areas.

The conflict between Russia and Ukraine continues to escalate as Russia increases its air strikes against Ukraine’s energy supply. This has caused disruptions in cities like Charkiw. In Russia, a fire broke out at a power plant in the Rostov region, with unofficial reports suggesting a Ukrainian drone attack. Ukraine has been defending itself against a large-scale Russian invasion for over two years, with recent drone attacks targeting the Russian oil industry.
