Ukrainian War: Gas plant attacked in recent Russian strike.

Must read

Days after one of Russia’s heaviest bombings of the war, more attacks were reported across Ukraine. Officials say a gas production and missile plant in Dnipro was one of the latest targets and at least four people have died in one area. After a series of battlefield setbacks in recent weeks, Russia has attempted to target Ukraine’s critical energy infrastructure. Moscow has yet to comment on Thursday’s alleged attacks. Four people were killed in a nighttime strike at a house in the Zaporizhzhya region, according to the president’s office. Meanwhile, one of Ukraine’s largest cities, Dnipro, was hit by rockets, setting fire to a factory and injuring 14 people. Prime Minister added that the Pivdenmash factory, especially in the city that manufactures rockets, was bombed. He is said to have landed 70 shells around the nearby town of Nikopol, damaging infrastructure and leaving thousands of homes without access to electricity and water.

According to the latest information from the authorities, another infrastructure was attacked in the Odesa and Kharkiv regions, and at each location, he suffered three injuries. The capital city of Kyiv was the only one of the places where the air raid sirens sounded. Around 08:00 local time (06:00 GMT), mobile phones began ringing the official warning of a new nationwide missile attack. Local air defenses were launched and military officials reported that two cruise missiles and at least two of his Iranian-made drones had been shot down. The head of the Lviv region said he had not yet received confirmation that air defense was also being carried out there. In response to Thursday’s nationwide strike, the head of the president’s office accused Russia of attempting to “strike backward”. Andriy Yermak added that this is a “naive tactic” that his compatriots can resist. Ukrainians were observed taking airstrike alerts more seriously after another widespread attack on Tuesday. Bombarded Ukraine in what was considered the most intense barrage.

Fears of a dangerous escalation of war heightened late Tuesday night when a missile landed outside Ukraine, killing two of them in a Polish village near the shared border. President Volodymyr Zelensky initially claimed it was launched by Russia, but Kyiv’s allies said it appeared to have been sent by Ukrainian air defenses instead. But NATO military alliance leader Jens Stoltenberg said it was ultimately Moscow’s fault that the war had started in the first place. Many of the missiles launched by Russia on Tuesday were intercepted, but the ones that hit infrastructure targets have resulted in the further depletion of Ukraine’s energy reserves. This is a new Russian tactic after a series of battlefield setbacks, and its effects are beginning to be felt more clearly.

Kyiv’s inhabitants woke up Thursday morning to a blanket of snow. An emergency power outage left many unable to heat their homes. The US commander-in-chief has warned that Kyiv’s short-term chances of winning the war by taking back all of Russia’s controlled countries are “militarily not high.” But General Mark Milley has acknowledged there may be a “political solution” for Russia to decide to withdraw, saying the aggressor forces are “behind the scenes”. Optimism reigns on the Ukrainian side after the recapture of the city of Kherson.

Reports are now surfacing that civilians are being tortured there during the Russian occupation. Russia has repeatedly denied atrocities during the conflict. In another development, the Ukrainian government said the agreement allowing the export of grain by ship in the Black Sea has been extended for another 120 days. The deal, brokered by the United Nations and Turkey, has shipped millions of tons of agricultural products out of Ukraine in recent months, alleviating concerns about global food security. Russia had blocked Ukraine’s Black Sea ports before it took effect in July.
