The Ukrainian city of Kyiv was the target of a wave of fatal Russian airstrikes on Monday, along with other cities.

In the midst of the continuous bombing, Ukrainian officials urged civilians nationwide to seek cover.

The number of fatalities wasn’t immediately known.

According to some Ukrainian authorities, at least five persons were slain in Kyiv.

According to early reports, at least eight people were killed and 24 were injured in just one of the Kyiv strikes, according to Rostyslav Smirnov, a consultant to the Ukrainian ministry of internal affairs.

In addition, Lviv in the west and Dnipro were both hit.

The strikes are largely perceived as the Kremlin’s response to an explosion that damaged the strategically significant bridge over the weekend that connects the annexed Crimean peninsula to the Russian mainland.

Putin reinforced those opinions on Monday afternoon as Ukraine wept, claiming that the barrage was in retaliation to Kyiv’s “terrorist” behavior.

Although the attack on the bridge was directly attributed to Ukraine, some authorities appeared to enjoy it.

Russian President Vladimir Putin allegedly wants to “destroy us and wipe us off the face of the earth,” according to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Union of Europe

The strikes in Kiev, according to the president of the European Parliament, are “sickening.”
