War Continues: A Massive Barrage Hit Several Cities In Ukraine

by Tommy Grant

The war between Russia and Ukraine is far from over, as Kiev reports a massive barrage of missiles that struck several cities around the country Thursday and Friday.  Multiple sites are said to be damaged by this attack.

The alleged air raid, which has yet to be confirmed by Moscow, reportedly involved dozens of drones, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles. Ukrainian Air Force spokesman Yuriy Ignat told the media “We have never seen so many targets on our monitors simultaneously.”

According to a report by RT, Kiev Mayor, Vitali Klitschko said a metro station was damaged, as well as warehouses in two separate districts of the Ukrainian capital. His office added that a business center was also set on fire. Sergey Lisak, who heads the Dnepropetrovsk Region, reported that a shopping mall was hit in the city of Dnepr, the region’s capital. Oleg Sinegub, his counterpart from Kharkov Region, said “civilian infrastructure” was damaged, including warehouses and a medical facility.

Prime Minister Denis Shmygal reported there had been issues with the power supply in the city of Kharkov – which city Mayor Igor Terekhov confirmed – and damage in Lviv, Sumy, Odesa, and Zaporizhzhia Regions. The minister claimed that “most of the air targets were intercepted” by Ukrainian forces.

Ignat claimed on national television that Russia used “everything” in its arsenal from kamikaze drones to hypersonic air-launched Kinzhal missiles.

Moscow previously stated that Kiev tends to exaggerate the number of Kinzhal missiles used by Russia in the conflict in order to claim that it intercepted those projectiles. –RT

This could push the war to all new levels, or it could make the West and Ukraine realize that Russia has already won, and everything so far was a waste of money and lives. But ruling classes never admit that they were wrong, so the expectation is that this will simply advance this war further.

Earlier this week, Kiev celebrated what it hailed as a major success in the conflict: a Russian warship in the Crimean port city of Feodosia was damaged by air-launched cruise missiles.
