Kyiv. The Russian military has once again stepped up its attack on Ukraine. On Monday, Russia dropped bombs in the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv. The whole area was again shaken by the explosion. There is a cloud of smoke all around. After a series of attacks by Russia, the supply of electricity and water in Ukraine has stopped in many areas. Kyiv Mayor Vitaly Klitschko said 80% of his city had lost water supplies. Apart from that, he said that during the Russian attack, the supply of basic facilities was cut off in around 350,000 homes.

Kharkiv in the north, Dnipro and Cherkasy in central Ukraine, and the southern city of Zaporizhzhya are also facing power outages. Kyiv commanders said more than 50 cruise missiles were fired by Russian strategic bombers in Ukraine, 44 of which were shot down. The attacks came two days after Russia accused Ukraine of launching a drone strike on Russia’s Black Sea Fleet off the coast of the Crimean peninsula.

Kyiv region governor Oleksiy Kuleba also said one person was injured and several houses were damaged in the attack this morning. According to officials, in Kharkiv the two attacks affected critical infrastructure and caused the metro to stop functioning. Authorities also warned of possible power cuts following strikes in the city of Zaporizhzhya.

Critical infrastructure was also attacked in the Cherkasy region, southeast of Kyiv, and explosions were reported in other parts of Ukraine. Apart from this, officials said Ukraine’s railway system was also affected due to the attack. Russia is targeting civilian infrastructure, including electricity and water supplies, in the attack.

Let’s say that in the face of setbacks on the battlefield, Moscow targets civilians to sabotage the will to continue the war. Such attacks constitute a war crime under international law.
