Russian Air Raids Target Ukraine’s Energy Infrastructure, Leaving Cities Without Power and Injuring Innocent People.

Numerous Explosions Rock Kyiv, the Ukrainian Capital

In the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, several explosions were heard on Monday morning. The city’s mayor Vitali Klitschko had instructed residents to go to shelters immediately after an air alarm was triggered. The Ukrainian Air Force reported that two ballistic missiles were fired over Kiev, using hypersonic missiles according to US Ambassador Bridget Brink.

Meanwhile, in southern Ukraine, Russian combat drones had damaged power supplies in the Odessa and Mykolaiv regions, leading to a partial power outage in Odessa. Local public transport with trams and trolleybuses in Odessa had to be stopped, but no injuries were reported. In the Mykolaiv region, a substation was damaged and caught fire due to a drone strike. Eleven people were injured, two seriously.

The Russian army has been increasing air strikes against Ukraine’s energy supply, causing disruptions in cities like Charkiw. There were also air strikes and artillery shelling in other regions, including the Zaporizhia and Sumy areas. In Russia, a fire broke out at a power plant in the Rostov region, with unofficial reports suggesting a Ukrainian drone attack. Ukraine has been defending itself against a large-scale Russian invasion for over two years, with recent drone attacks targeting the Russian oil industry.

The conflict continues to escalate, with both sides engaging in military actions to assert their power. Despite efforts by international leaders to negotiate a peaceful resolution to the conflict, tensions remain high between Russia and Ukraine.
