Kyiv – Russia unleashed massive rocket fire on cities across Ukraine early Thursday, targeting energy infrastructure facilities, Ukrainian officials and media said.
Air raid sirens blared across Ukraine in the first missile attack of its kind in weeks.
The governor of the north-eastern Kharkiv region, Oleh Syniehubov, reported more than 15 strikes in Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second largest city.
“Objects of critical infrastructure are again in the crosshairs of the squatters,” he said in a Telegram post.
The governor of the southern Odessa region, Maksym Marchenko, also reported on strikes in Odessa, saying that power plants and residential buildings had been hit.
Explosions were also reported from cities in Dnieper, Lutsk and Rivne.
