Russia unleashes biggest attacks in Ukraine in months

  |  

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russia has retaliated for what it claimed was a Ukrainian terrorist attack on a critical bridge by unleashing its biggest and most widespread attacks against Ukraine in months.

The lethal barrage Monday against multiple cities smashed civilian targets. It killed at least 11 people, knocked out power and water, and shattered cars and buildings.

Ukraine’s Emergency Service said at least 11 people were killed and 64 wounded across the country in the morning attacks — the biggest and broadest since the early days of the war.

One Russian missile hit a playground in downtown Kyiv and another struck a central building of a university.
