On Tuesday morning, October 18, Russian forces dispatched attacks on Ukraine’s energy facilities, with strikes on Kyiv and other major cities.
It was reported that two facilities were seriously damaged in the central city of Dnipro and power cuts in Zhytomyr while Ukraine’s Presidential aide Kyrylo Tymoshenko said there had been three explosions in Kyiv.
The recent attacks came 24 hours after Kyiv was hit by “kamikaze” drones on Monday.
At least eight people were murdered by the drone aircraft, which are thought to be Iranian-made, in the capital and the northern city of Sumy. Essential infrastructure were damaged thereby causing power outages in hundreds of towns and villages.
Although Tymoshenko, the deputy head of the presidential office, claimed that an S-300 anti-aircraft missile was launched at a residential building in the southern city of Mykolaiv overnight, killing one person, it remained unclear as of press time whether drones were involved in Tuesday’s strikes. The flower market for the city was also devastated.
They also hit Infrastructure in the southern city of Zaporizhzhia, although local officials said no one sustained an injury.
On Monday, 218 prisoners were exchanged between Russia and Ukraine, including 108 Ukrainian women, in one of the largest prisoner exchanges since the start of Russia’s conflict in February.
