Russian rocket attacks on Ukraine

Canadian officials have condemned Russia after it launched deadly strikes on several Ukrainian cities on Monday, including central Kyiv, where at least six people were killed.

Monday’s rocket strikes against Ukraine were Russia’s largest and most extensive attacks on the country in recent months. The Emergency Situations Service of Ukraine said the attack killed at least 11 people and injured at least 64.

Canadian Ambassador to Ukraine Larisa Galadze said that the staff of the Canadian Embassy in Ukraine, both local and Canadian, are safe.

Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Jolie tweeted that the attacks were shocking and horrifying, saying that targeting civilians was a war crime for which Russia would be held accountable.

On Monday morning, cities throughout Ukraine were subjected to a massive rocket attack. For the first time in months, strikes were carried out in the center of Kyiv.

Powerful explosions thundered in Lvov, Dnipro, Ternopil, Ivano-Frankivsk, Zhytomyr, Kharkiv, Khmelnytsky, Kremenchug and other cities.

The attack was made during the morning rush hour. There are reports of dead and wounded civilians.

In Kyiv, rockets hit objects in the central districts of the city – Shevchenkovsky and Solomensky. One of the rockets exploded near the monument to Grushevsky on Vladimirskaya Street, another one – next to the new pedestrian and bicycle bridge across Vladimirsky Spusk.

Video footage shows at least one explosion near a playground in Shevchenko Park.

Without heat and light, not only factories were left, but also cities in which many people live – Russia seeks to bring war to every home in Ukraine.
