The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine released a map showing the locations hit by Russia’s rocket fire on Monday.
Valerii Zaluzhnyi, the supreme commander of Ukraine’s military, shared the map on his Facebook page. He noted that the map only showed the areas hit by Russia’s air and missile strikes between 10:20 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. local time.
Zaluzhnyi also noted that the Russian army used a range of missiles to conduct the bombing, including air-, sea- and land-launched missiles, ballistic missiles, surface-to-air missiles, reconnaissance missiles and Shahed-136 kamikaze drones. However, he stressed that Ukraine’s armed forces had successfully destroyed most of the Russian missiles involved in the attacks.
Russia fired at least 84 missiles at several cities in Ukraine on Monday, 43 of which were neutralized by its missile defense systems. At least 14 people were killed in the strikes, while 97 were injured, according to a telegram post from Ukraine’s emergency services.
In a televised address aired after the attack, Russian President Vladimir Putin said the rocket attacks were in response to Saturday’s bombing of a bridge in the Russian-occupied Crimea peninsula, which he says was ordered by Ukraine’s special services. However, Ukraine has not claimed responsibility for the Crimean Bridge bombing.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has since held a telephone conversation with President Joe Biden, in which they discussed “the importance of air defense” and the “continued contributions of the United States to increasing” Ukraine’s capabilities.
“Today’s attacks on civilian targets across Ukraine are a sign of the weakness of the Russian army, which is losing on the battlefield. It’s pure terror. But we will not succumb to Russian missile blackmail,” Zelenskyy said in the appeal.
According to CNBC, leaders of the G-7 group are expected to hold an emergency meeting via video conference on Tuesday to discuss the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine. The outlet also noted that Zelensky will speak at the meeting.
Karim Ahmad Khan, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), said they will conduct a criminal investigation, adding that he believes there will be justice for war crimes committed in Ukraine during the Russian war.
