Russia launched a new barrage of Missiles on Ukraine It caused a huge fire to break out in a city in the east, at night, damaging dozens of homes and injuring at least 34 people. The attack on Pavlohrad, a city and rail hub, came during the second wave of nationwide missile strikes in three days, with Moscow apparently reviving its winter tactic of long-range strikes ahead of the planned plan. Ukrainian counterattack.
Mykola Lukashuk, head of the Dnipropetrovsk region council, said the attack destroyed 19 residential buildings, 25 homes, three schools, three kindergartens and several shops. Among the 34 wounded were five children. The Russian Defense Ministry said its forces had struck, using long-range, high-precision air and sea missiles, against “Ukrainian military-industrial facilities”.
Damage appeared to be limited elsewhere in Ukraine, after sirens blared for hours throughout the night. Ukraine said it shot down 15 of the 18 incoming cruise missiles. Kiev officials said there were no reports of civilian casualties or damage there. The energy ministry said the attacks had severely damaged electricity distribution points in the southern Kherson region and the central eastern Dnipropetrovsk region.
The attacks came just three days after a missile killed 23 civilians in a high-rise apartment building in the city of Uman, part of the first major nationwide barrage of airstrikes in nearly two months. Both sides have reported an upsurge in attacks in recent days. The wave of strikes may signal the beginning of a turn in a conflict that has settled for months into a grinding war of attrition, in which tens of thousands of soldiers have been killed or wounded in fierce fighting across eastern Ukraine, but neither side holds territory.
