Russia continued its deadly barrage against Ukraine yesterday as missiles hit several parts of the country.
Kyiv, Dnipro and the southern port of Odessa were blown up in a series of attacks earlier this week in an ongoing bombardment of energy infrastructure.
Video footage from a car dashcam of a fireball engulfing a rainy street, allegedly a rocket explosion in the center of Dnipro, was posted to Telegram by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
“This is another confirmation from Dnipro how terrorists want peace,” he wrote, referring to the Kremlin. “The peaceful city and people’s desire to live their normal lives. To work, to your company. A missile attack!’
Elsewhere, officials said two people were killed in an attack on the southern Zaporizhia region and three injured in Kharkiv in the northeast.
“Now missiles are flying over Kiev,” the Interfax news agency was quoted as saying by Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal at a conference. “Now they are bombing our gas production, they are bombing our companies in Dnipro and Yushmash (missile factory).”
As snow fell in Kiev, authorities said they were working this week to restore power across the country after damage.
Meanwhile, NATO and Poland concluded that a missile that hit a Polish village on Tuesday, killing two people, was likely a cluster missile fired by Ukraine’s air defenses. Mr. Zelensky challenged that view in a rare public disagreement with his Western allies.
