Ukraine war: Five Kiev and Mykolaiv residents die in Russian air strikes


Ukrainian officials said that cities in Ukraine were subjected to missile and drone attacks from Russia on Wednesday morning, resulting in the deaths of at least five individuals and causing injuries to many more.

Four individuals perished as a result of a direct impact on a residential block in the Holosiyivsky area of Kyiv.

Officials said that a male individual was also fatally injured in the southern city of Mykolaiv.

A nationwide air warning was issued, and assaults were reported as far as Lviv, near the Polish border.

According to Valerii Zaluzhnyi, Ukraine's commander-in-chief, Russia launched 64 missiles and drones, 44 of which were successfully intercepted. The Ukrainian Air Force has reported the detection of Russian cruise missiles over the western areas of Lviv, Ternopil, and Ivano-Frankivsk.

President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine first said that two individuals had lost their lives in "yet another extensive assault on our nation". Additional casualties were discovered within the debris of the 18-story residential structure.

Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said that a crashed Russian missile damaged power lines, leaving several houses in the capital without electricity.

According to Oleksandr Senkevich, the mayor of Mykolaiv, one individual who was sent to the hospital in Mykolaiv subsequently succumbed to their injuries.

Additional individuals received medical attention on-site after the assault, which caused damage to residences and impeded the provision of gas and water, he further said.

Additionally, detonations were audible in Kharkiv, accompanied by reports from military officials on specific infrastructure damage.

Ukraine has been subjected to repeated aerial assaults since the invasion by Russia on February 24, 2022. Russian troops often use a variety of armaments, such as uncrewed aerial vehicles and projectiles, during their assaults.
