RUSSIA launched its second major round of missile attacks on Ukraine in three days yesterday, with explosions reported throughout the country.
Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko said at least one person was killed and eight injured — including a Japanese journalist — after missiles struck the capital.
A hotel south of the city centre and homes were hit. Ukrainian artillery fired back.
Governor of Kyiv, Oleksiy Kuleba said “The terrorist country launched several waves of missiles.
“They are wishing us a happy New Year. But we will persevere.”
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian ministry of defence wrote that “with each new missile attack on civilian infrastructure, more and more Ukrainians are convinced of the need to fight until the complete collapse of Putin’s regime.”
Their human rights official, Dmytro Lubinets called the bombing “Terror on New Year’s Eve.”
“The terrorist country is congratulating the Ukrainian people with missiles.
“But we are indestructible and unconquerable. There is no fear, but the fury is rising. We will definitely win,” he said.
