Kyiv Attack: Central Kyiv was once again rocked by multiple explosions on Monday after Russia’s attacks on several cities in Ukraine last week. Kyiv city mayor Vitaly Klichko said the capital’s central Shevchenko district had been affected by the attack and urged residents to rush to refugee centers to save lives. However, other information regarding the attack was not immediately available. The blasts were carried out in the same central district where a week earlier a Russian missile had targeted a children’s playground and a square near the main buildings of the Kyiv National University.

Images and posts uploaded on social media clearly showed plumes of black smoke as the fire broke out in the region of central Kyiv. The head of Ukraine’s presidential office, Andrey Yermak, wrote in a post on the social media platform ‘Telegram’ that Russian forces attacked Kyiv with an Iranian Shahed drone. Russia has been repeatedly using so-called suicide drones to target infrastructure, including power stations, in recent weeks. President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his address on Sunday night that heavy fighting was going on around the cities of Bakhmut and Soledar in the Donetsk region.

Rocket dropped on mayor’s office

A day earlier it was reported that a rocket attack was carried out on the mayor’s office of a major separatist-held city in Ukraine, for which Russia-backed officials have blamed Ukraine. On the other hand, Ukrainian officials, referring to a separate incident, said that a Russian rocket hit a city across from the Zaporizhzhya nuclear plant, injuring six people. Attacks from both sides have intensified as Russia’s ground slipped in a span of nearly seven weeks following a counter-offensive by Ukraine’s armed forces from the south.

In the wake of Ukraine’s recent counterattack, Russia launched its biggest retaliation since its offensive launched on February 24 and launched its largest and most coordinated air and missile strikes on Ukraine’s key infrastructure. The municipal building was severely damaged by a rocket attack in the separatist-controlled Donetsk. Plumes of smoke were rising around the building. The windows of the building were blown off and the roof partially collapsed in the attack. Cars parked nearby have been burnt. There is no immediate information on casualties. Ukraine has neither claimed responsibility nor commented on the attack.

Japorizia attacks

Ukrainian officials said on Sunday that at least six people were injured as a result of rocket attacks off Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, Zaporizhzhya, where Russia has deployed its troops. Kyrlo Tymoshenko, deputy head of Ukraine’s presidential office, said two residents of Nikopol were hospitalized after attacks that damaged five power lines, gas pipelines and residential buildings. Russia and Ukraine have repeatedly accused each other of firing in and around the plant.

Ukrainian authorities have regularly reported attacks on civilian communities across the Dnieper River from the plant, including Nikopol and nearby Marhanet. The presidential office and regional officials also reported that Russian rockets destroyed two schools, a park and private homes in the southern region of Zaporizhzhya.
