Russia returns to massive bombing of Ukraine with new command

Russia massively attacked the civil and energy infrastructure in Kyiv and other Ukrainian regions this Saturday in two waves a few days after the appointment of a new head of the Russian armed forces in Ukraine, Valeri Gerasimov, and after several days without air bombardments.

The attacks resumed in the morning in the capital and the Kyiv region, where explosions were heard before anti-aircraft alarms were also activated in Zaporizhia and Mykolaiv. In the afternoon the map of the alerts was dyed red for two hours throughout the country.

According to the Ukrainian Air Force, Russia launched 38 missiles from the Black and Caspian Seas and by Russian fighters, of which 25 were destroyed by air defense.

Dnipro suffered the most tragic hit from missiles

The city of Dnipro, in the central Dnipropetrovsk region, suffered the most tragic impact from the missiles. The shelling hit a nine-story residential building. The head of the Regional Military Administration, Valentin Reznichenko, pointed out that there are at least 5 dead and almost 60 injured, including 12 children, but rescue teams continue to search for survivors among the rubble. During this Saturday they managed to rescue 20 people alive, including 3 children.

The operator of the electricity transmission system in Ukraine, Ukrenergo, indicated that Russia launched the twelfth massive attack against Ukraine’s energy sector and that there were hits in five regions: kyiv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Vinnytsia, Lviv and Kharkiv.

The country’s president, Volodimir Zelensky, stressed that “the world must stop this evil.” “We will find all those involved in this terror” and “everyone will take responsibility, the utmost responsibility,” he emphasized.
