Several explosions were heard this Saturday morning in kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, according to journalists from the AFP agency. Ukrainian officials claimed the attacks targeted key infrastructure.
“A missile attack against key infrastructure facilities” is taking place in kyiv, the deputy head of the Ukrainian President’s office Kirilo Timoshenko said on Telegram, while the capital’s mayor Vitali Klitschko reported explosions in the Dniprovskiy district and urged residents to “stay in the shelters.”
In another message on Telegram, Klitschko added that some missile fragments fell in a non-residential area of the Holosiivskyi district, leaving no fatalities.
Shortly after the message, the authorities issued an air alert for the capital and the region of the same name.
Since October and after a series of military setbacks, Russia has chosen to systematically attack Ukrainian strategic infrastructure.
Ukraine’s energy services have been working hard to repair the power grid as winter progresses.
