By India Today Web Desk: The Ukrainian authorities have reported major missile explosions in at least 3 cities and blamed Russia for the “major missile attack” on energy facilities and infrastructure.
Local Ukrainian authorities reported explosions in the capital, Kyiv, southern Kryvyi Rih and northeastern Kharkiv on social media as they sounded air raid alarms across the country warning of a new destructive bombardment of the Russian strikes that have occurred intermittently since mid-October.
Kharkiv is without electricity, said Mayor Ihor Terekhov on Telegram. Kharkiv regional governor Oleh Syniehubov reported three strikes on the city’s critical infrastructure.
A top official in President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s office, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, reported a strike on a residential building in Kryvyi Rih. “There may be people under the rubble.” Emergency services were on site,” Tymoshenko warned on Telegram.
Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko reported explosions in the northeastern Desnianskyi and western Holosiivskyi district, and has urged residents to go to shelters.
“The attack on the capital continues,” he wrote on Telegram.
