Ukraine activates anti-aircraft alarms throughout the country amid fears of more Russian missile attacks

The Ukrainian authorities again today activated anti-aircraft alarms throughout the country, including kyiv, after the massive attacks on critical infrastructure on Friday.

Military sources also recommended that the population remain in safe places or move to shelters, while a first bombardment against civilian targets was reported from Kherson, with at least one citizen dead, according to the Ukrinform portal.

In kyiv it was possible this Saturday to restore the supply of running water, although half of its population is still without electricity, according to the mayor of the Ukrainian capital, Vitali Klitchsko.

From other parts of the country, such as Kharkiv, it has also been reported that the electricity supply has been recovered, at least partially, according to the Ukrinform portal.

Ukraine suffered another wave of massive Russian attacks with missiles and drones on its energy infrastructure on Friday.

It was the ninth attack of these characteristics since last October and spread across 16 regions of Ukraine, including kyiv.

It is estimated that Russia launched some 80 missiles on Ukraine on this day, in which the sirens began to sound in a large part of the country starting early in the morning.

In kyiv alone, 40 missiles were detected, of which, according to Ukrainian sources, 37 were shot down.

The state electricity company Ukrenergo claimed that the Russian bombing caused more than 50% of the country’s electricity grid to be affected.
