In a single day, Russia unleashes two large-scale bombings on Ukraine

On Monday morning, Kyiv experienced a sudden bombardment by Russian forces deployed in Crimea. Several hypersonic ballistic missiles were fired from the illegally annexed peninsula, reaching the capital and causing damage in three districts. Later in the afternoon, Russia launched ballistic missiles from the Black Sea targeting Odessa, Kremenchuk and Kirovograd.

The Russian military intensified its bombings against Ukrainian targets following accusations by President Putin against Ukrainian authorities. In response, Ukrainian intelligence services launched bomb drone attacks on Russian oil refineries, leading to disruptions in fuel production. These events have triggered retaliatory bombings by the Russian army against Ukrainian cities and military targets. The conflict continues to escalate as both sides engage in strategic attacks and counterattacks.

Ukraine faces a serious deficit in anti-aircraft ammunition, leading to bursts of anti-aircraft machine gun fire in an attempt to shoot down the missiles. Panic among citizens was caused by the speed at which projectiles reached Kyiv without anti-aircraft alarms warning of danger. This marked the third attack on Kyiv in five days and fourth large-scale attack on multiple Ukrainian provinces. The use of Zircon missiles was identified by both Russian and Ukrainian military analysts for the first time against Kyiv in February 2023. The Ukrainian Air Force reported intercepting two of them but at least five explosions were heard.

Damage was reported in multiple districts of Kyiv including destruction of municipal administration headquarters and Academy of Decorative Arts and Design, while at least two large explosions were reported near Sports Palace resulting in injuries and damage to civilian structures in Odessa city
