DIRECT. War in Ukraine: Russian strikes plunge cities and houses into darkness, search for survivors in the Dnieper,

The most important

  • Russia launched another massive missile attack on Ukraine on Saturday, Orthodox New Year’s Day, killing and injuring civilians and causing power outages.
  • To counter the Russian armada, Kyiv has again called on its Western allies to provide it with more weapons and highly effective military equipment.
  • The UK will supply Ukraine with Challenger 2 tanks, the first Western-made heavy armored vehicles.
  • Ukraine still claims control of the city of Soledar, which Moscow claims was taken after heavy fighting.
  • Turkey advocates a “local ceasefire”.

Affected power generation facilities

“In most regions, a decision has been made on emergency cuts,” Ukrainian Energy Minister Herman Galushchenko said on Saturday evening. Russian strikes have dealt a blow to the country’s electric power facilities, including in Kharkiv, Lvov, Ivano-Frankivsk, Zaporozhye, Vinnitsa and Kyiv regions.

Operator Ukrenergo, for its part, said it was working to “repair the consequences” of this “twelfth massive missile attack on Ukraine’s energy sector.”


“The world must stop this evil”

“Is it possible to stop the Russian terror? Yes it is possible. Can we do this not on the battlefield in Ukraine? Unfortunately, no,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky commented last night.

“The world must stop this evil,” he pleaded.


Survivors from the rubble

Rescuers work on the ruins of a bombed-out building. The head of the Dnepropetrovsk regional military administration, Valentin Reznichenko, said early Sunday morning that 38 survivors had been rescued from the rubble so far.


64 dead in Dnipro

The latest death toll in eastern Ukraine’s Dnipro shows at least 14 people were killed, including a 15-year-old girl, and 64 were injured in a shelling of a nine-story building on Saturday, including several apartments – little more than smoking rubble. . .
