“Another massive attack against our country. Six regions have come under enemy attack. All our services are now working to cope with the consequences of this terror,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky wrote on Telegram, adding that three people had died in Kyiv and “there may still be people under the rubble”.
According to the Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko, a pregnant woman was among those injured when a multi-storey residential building was hit, and a heating main on the left bank of the city was also damaged.
The Russian military also shelled the Mykolayiv, Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Kharkiv, Donetsk, Sumy and Dnipropetrovsk regions of Ukraine, regional authorities said. The Kherson, Zaporizhzhia and Mykolayiv regions each reported a single death in the attacks.
