The death toll from the latest round of Russian missile strikes in Ukraine has risen to six, with dozens more injured and most of the country facing blackouts.
Six killed in Kyiv after Russian strikes
A Russian missile strike knocked out electricity in the Kyiv region and elsewhere across the country, killing at least six people during attacks that caused blackouts across the country.
Kyiv was one of the main targets of missile strikes on energy facilities on Wednesday that cut power in many regions and made emergency blackouts necessary in others to conserve energy and enable repairs as winter sets in.
“Our little one was sleeping. Two years old. She was sleeping, she got covered. She is alive, thanks be to God,” said Fyodr, a Kyiv resident walking away from a smouldering apartment building that was hit in Kyiv, dragging a suitcase.
“I’m local. They’re going to find a place for us somewhere… everyone is in the same boat. It’s not just me.”
