On Monday morning, explosions were reported in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, just hours after an air alarm had been triggered. Kiev Mayor Vitali Klitschko issued an immediate warning on Telegram for residents to seek shelter. The cause of the explosions was attributed to Russian combat drones that had damaged power supplies in the Odessa and Mykolaiv regions of southern Ukraine.

The Ukrainian Air Force reported that two ballistic missiles were fired over Kiev, using hypersonic missiles according to US Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink. In addition, debris from a rocket damaged a residential building in Kiev while public transport in Odessa had to be stopped due to the attacks.

A substation in the Mykolaiv region was damaged and caught fire, resulting in injuries to eleven people, two of whom were seriously hurt. Meanwhile, the Ukrainian army shot down eight of nine Russian drones that launched from the Crimean peninsula. Air strikes were also reported on the Zaporizhia region and artillery shelling in the Sumy region in eastern Ukraine.

The ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia has resulted in major problems for cities like Charkiw as Russian air strikes continue against Ukraine’s energy supply. Repairs to the network in Charkiw are expected to take about a week. In Russia, a fire at the Novocherkassk power and thermal power plant was attributed to a Ukrainian drone attack, although the cause was officially under investigation.

Ukraine has been defending against a Russian invasion for over two years and has expanded its use of drones to target the Russian oil industry. These events highlight the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, with both sides engaging in military actions that have led to casualties and damage to critical infrastructure. The situation remains volatile as both countries continue to escalate their attacks and defenses in the region.
