Russia launches heaviest wave of attacks since start of Ukraine war
After missiles hit at least 10 Ukrainian cities, President Vladimir V. Putin warned in a televised address that “no one should have any doubt” that Russia will defend itself.
KYIV, Ukraine — President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia ordered a far-reaching series of missile strikes against cities across Ukraine on Monday, hitting the heart of Kyiv, the capital, and other areas far from the front line in the broadest aerial assault against civilians and critical infrastructure since the early days of Moscow’s invasion.
Russia’s attacks killed at least 11 people nationwide and wounded 89 others, the Ukrainian authorities said, and knocked out power and other key services in multiple cities. Mr. Putin said the strikes were in response to a blast that hit a key Russian bridge over the weekend, which he called a “terrorist attack.” He threatened further strikes if Ukraine continued to hit Russian targets.
