Today, at least two explosions thundered in Kyiv, smoke rose over the city, a Reuters correspondent in the Ukrainian capital reports. All regional centers of Ukraine were subjected to missile attacks. Critical damage was done to the country’s infrastructure, authorities said.
The explosions followed an airstrike warning against Ukraine, hours after President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke via video link with G20 leaders gathered in Bali. It is possible that today was the largest single missile attack on Ukraine since the beginning of the Russian invasion. The scale of its consequences will become clear later. But the authorities are already confirming that critical damage has been done to the country’s energy infrastructure.
