Russia renews missile attacks on Kyiv, attacks intensify in the east

Russia launched a missile attack on Ukraine’s capital Kyiv and the surrounding region, as well as conducting drone strikes in the east and south of the country, according to Ukrainian officials. Ukrainian border guards reported retaking a village near the Russian border. Officials in the east stated that Ukrainian forces successfully repelled multiple attacks by Russian troops and expected further assaults, particularly in Avdiivka. The head of the Kyiv city military administration confirmed that a Russian ballistic missile was launched towards the capital but was shot down by air defenders. There were no casualties or major damage reported. However, several buildings in the central Kyiv region were damaged by two Russian missiles. Ukrainian air defense also intercepted and shot down 19 Iranian-made drones launched by Russian forces. Ukrainian intelligence officials warned that this was not the first or last combined attack, as air alerts have been increasing in recent days.

In the Kharkiv region, video footage showed Ukrainian border guards raising the Ukrainian flag in the village of Topoli near the Russian border. The reasons behind this action were not explained. In the Sumy region, two people on motorcycles were killed when Russian forces shelled a road. In Avdiivka, Ukrainian troops successfully repelled 35 Russian assaults, with 70% of air strikes targeting the city. Officials in Avdiivka anticipate a new Russian offensive once the ground dries up from heavy rain. The city has already suffered significant damage, and more residents are preparing to evacuate. In Odesa, the southern region of Ukraine, missiles and drones attacked the area, causing injuries and damage to port infrastructure. Russia has been intensifying bombardments of Ukrainian ports and grain infrastructure since withdrawing from a deal in July. Russian accounts claim that their forces targeted positions near Bakhmut, a town captured by Moscow in May. However, RushHourDaily could not independently verify these claims.

In conclusion, Russia’s missile attack on Kyiv and drone strikes in Ukraine’s east and south have escalated the conflict. Ukrainian forces have successfully repelled attacks and are anticipating further assaults. The situation remains tense, with both sides engaged in military actions and casualties reported.
