Authorities in several Ukrainian cities are reporting rocket and missile attacks Monday morning.
In central Dnipropetrovsk, Valentyn Reznichenko, head of the regional military administration, said there had been a “massive rocket attack on the region. There are dead and wounded.”
“Do not come out of the shelters. There is still a threat of rocket attacks,” Reznichenko posted on Telegram.
Authorities in northeastern Kharkiv also reported attacks. Oleh Syniehubov, head of the Kharkiv military administration, said there were explosions in the city.
Kharkiv Mayor Ihor Terekhov said “initial reports indicate three strikes on Kharkiv.”
“The impact was at an energy infrastructure facility. Some areas of the city lost power, there is no water supply,” he said.
In the south, Vitalii Kim, head of the Mykolaiv region civil military administration, said Tu-95 bombers had launched waves of missile attacks, with 47 “projectiles” fired.
Air defenses had shot down three rockets, he said. The Russians were also using Iranian-made attack drones, he added.
“Cowards are hitting the critical infrastructure (throughout all Ukraine),” Kim said.
Explosions were also reported early Monday in the western city of Lviv and the capital, Kyiv, where at least five people were killed. Casualties were also reported in the southeastern city of Zaporizhzhia after a Russian missile strike destroyed an apartment block.
