A wave of Russian missiles and drones swept across Kyiv and other Ukrainian cities Thursday, killing at least six people and knocking out power to hundreds of thousands in one of the biggest attacks on the besieged country this year.
At seven people were injured, authorities in the regions of Kyiv, Lyiv and Dnipropetrovsk said on their Telegram channels. Sites in Kharkiv, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Zhytomyr and Kirovohrad were also struck. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy described “a difficult night” as the barrage hit critical infrastructure facilities.
Russia launched 81 missiles and eight exploding Shahed drones, Ukraine military officials said. Thirty-four cruise missiles and four drones were intercepted, they said.
