By 2023, Russia is clearly showing that it does not intend to give Ukraine a break. And unleashes a new rain of bombs in what the Ministry of Defense in Kyiv described as “one of the largest missile attacks on Moscow since the beginning of the war.” In the early hours of the morning, air raid alerts sounded across the country. Then explosions in Kyiv, Lviv, Kharkiv, Odessa and Sumy. In all, the invading fire destroyed ten districts, killing at least three civilians and wounding seven. And while a diplomatic solution remains elusive, with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov dismissing Volodymyr Zelensky’s peace plan as an “illusion”, Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni nominates Italy as a “guarantor of a process” that will lead to the end of the conflict.
Although the Ukrainian army shot down 54 of the 69 missiles fired by the Russians, Kyiv denounces that the latest attack hit a hospital, residential buildings and vital infrastructure, causing severe damage to the electricity grids that left 40% of the country’s citizens dead. Dark Kyiv forced emergency power outages in several regions. That’s right from Moscow, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wished reporters “warmth, faith and light” for the New Year. Then a second wave of Russian kamikaze drone attacks hit: Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called it “senseless barbarism”. And the latest Ukrainian police report can speak of barbarism, which indicated 1,116 civilian bodies found so far in the liberated regions of Mykolaiv, Donetsk, Kherson, and Kharkiv. Tensions are running high with Belarus, which reportedly intercepted a Ukrainian missile on its soil in the Brest region. Minsk summoned the Ukrainian ambassador, informing him of the Lukashenko government’s protest, but from Kyiv they reject the accusations and “do not rule out a deliberate provocation by the Russian terrorist state, which has tracked its own cruise missiles that would allow it to be intercepted in the airspace over the territory of Belarus.” .
Rocket attacks across Ukraine, the death toll at least three
The death toll from the Russian missile attacks on Ukraine on Thursday, at least three people, and power outages in most areas. Explosions occurred across Ukraine, including in the city of Kyiv, the second city of Kharkiv in the east, and the western city of Lviv near the border with Poland. “We have three dead and six wounded, including a child,” Ukrainian Interior Minister Denis Monastyrsky said of the bombing. The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Valery Zalogny, said that Russia had launched 69 cruise missiles, of which 54 were shot down.
Zelensky: Russia is at a standstill, it has fewer and fewer missiles
In the wake of the continuous attacks on Ukraine, Russia “has fewer and fewer missiles” and has entered a “dead end”. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said this evening. With each of these missile strikes, Russia is sinking deeper and deeper into a dead end. They have fewer and fewer missiles. Instead, the status of the world’s largest terrorist will have consequences for Russia and its citizens for a long time to come. And each missile only confirms that all this must go to court, ”he said in his evening video address. Today Russia launched a new massive attack on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure, injuring at least three people in Kyiv and 90% of the city of Lviv. Without electricity. As a result of this attack, the electricity supply was cut off in most parts of the country. “Our power engineers and repair crews are doing their best throughout the day to ensure that Ukrainians are affected as little as possible by the consequences of the terrorist attack,” he added.
