“A missile attack on Kharkiv. A series of explosions in the city. Information on casualty and targets to be clarified,” said Ihor Terekhov, Kharkiv’s mayor.

Andriy Sadovyi, the mayor of Lviv, has also reported explosions in his city. The local governor Maksim Kozitsky says air defence is in operation in Lviv.

Vitali Kim, the Mykolaiv governor, reported that five missiles had been taken down. Military officials reported taking down two missiles over the region of Sumy.

The regions of Odesa and Dnipro suffered emergency blackouts. The power company says this was done in order to prevent potential major damage to the grid that would be inevitable “should the enemy hit energy facilities”.

Mykhaylo Podolyak of Zelensky’s administration has reported that Russia launched 120 missiles against Ukraine this time.
