Strikes kill three, injure six in Kyiv as Moscow targets ‘critical infrastructure’

At least three were dead and six injured, due to the latest Russian strikes in Kyiv, Ukrainian officials said on Wednesday. As quoted by news agencies, the city’s military administration said on Telegram: “As a result of the attack, a two-storey residential building was damaged. Three people died and six were injured.”
Officials have said that the strikes have damaged energy infrastructure. The Kyiv city administration said on social media that the “enemy is launching missile strikes on critical infrastructure in Kyiv city”. They further urged people to stay in shelters until the air alert ends.
Lviv’s mayor Andriy Sadovyi said on social media that in the aftermath of missile strikes in the Ukrainian capital, the city was left completely without power.
Mayor Andriy Sadovyi said: “The whole city is without power. We are waiting for additional information from energy experts.” Sadovyi also warned that the water supply might also get interrupted.

Moldovan deputy prime minister Andrei Spinu wrote on Facebook: “As a result of Russia’s bombardment on the Ukrainian energy system, within the last hour we have massive electricity blackouts in the whole country. Moldelectrica is working to reestablish electricity supplies.”
