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

On Monday, Russia launched two large-scale bombings targeting Ukrainian cities far from the front lines. Kyiv was hit by several hypersonic ballistic missiles fired from the illegally annexed peninsula of Crimea, causing damage in three districts. Later in the afternoon, Russia launched ballistic missiles from the Black Sea targeting the cities of Odessa and Kremenchuk, as well as the province of Kirovograd.

The speed at which the projectiles reached Kyiv without anti-aircraft alarms being able to warn of danger caused panic among citizens. This marked the third attack on Kyiv in five days and the fourth large-scale attack on multiple Ukrainian provinces. The use of Zircon missiles, an innovative weapon in Russia’s arsenal, was identified by Russian and Ukrainian military analysts for the first time against Kyiv in February. The Ukrainian Air Force reported intercepting two of these missiles in the capital but at least five explosions were heard.

Ukraine faces a serious deficit in anti-aircraft ammunition, leading to bursts of anti-aircraft machine gun fire in an attempt to shoot down these missiles. Ukrainian officials have emphasized the need for more anti-aircraft defenses to protect cities and save lives. In Odessa, at least two large explosions were reported near the Sports Palace resulting in injuries and damage to civilian structures.

The Russian military intensified its bombings against Ukrainian targets following accusations made by President Putin against Ukrainian authorities regarding power grids and military installations. In response, Ukraine’s intelligence services launched drone attacks on Russian oil refineries leading to disruptions in fuel production. These events have triggered retaliatory bombings by Russia against Ukrainian cities and military targets, further escalating
