Kyiv defiant as Russian bombs rain down on cities



Missile strikes right across the war-torn nation are a clear escalation in the conflict. 14 people were killed and dozens more injured as weapons of mass destruction rained down on Ukraine’s major cities

It is the first time the nation’s capital, Kyiv has been targeted in months.

Several regions were left without power or water after the strikes as emergency services work around the clock to survey the damage and provide assistance.

But Ukrainian front-line troops say the morale remains high.

Putin’s revenge

Russian President Vladimir Putin says these recent attacks are a direct response to what he labels a ‘terrorist attack’ on the key bridge connecting Russia with annexed-Crimea.

In neighbouring Belarus, the country’s leader Alexander Lukashenko has mobilised his troops near Ukraine and ordered them to fight with Russian forces.

Lukashenko is claiming his nation is next in the firing line, stating Ukraine and NATO are standing by to launch an attack on his country.

He has offered no evidence to substantiate these claims.

“Profound moral issues”

In the United States, Secretary of State Antony Blinken has issued a statement on the missile strikes.

He says the attacks serve as a reminder that Russia’s war “presents a profound moral issue”.

He continues, adding, “no person of conscience – and no country of principle – could be unmoved by the devastation of these horrors”.

The U.S. has confirmed it will continue to provide all kinds of assistance “so Ukraine can defend itself and take care of its people”.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen says these recent attacks are a clear demonstration of Moscow’s motives.

How Ukraine succeeds in attacking Russian military targets



Ukraine has managed to launch successful attacks on key Russian military facilities, leaving experts and analysts baffled by the unexpected outcomes.

These strategic assaults have raised questions about Ukraine’s military capabilities and the effectiveness of its tactics in countering Russian forces.

Ukraine’s recent victories can be attributed to several key factors. First and foremost, the country has significantly improved its intelligence gathering and information warfare capabilities, allowing it to pinpoint vulnerabilities in Russian defenses. This enhanced situational awareness has enabled Ukraine to launch precise and coordinated strikes on critical military installations.

Additionally, Ukraine has received substantial support from international allies, both in terms of military equipment and training. This assistance has bolstered the Ukrainian military’s effectiveness and provided them with advanced weaponry, giving them an edge in their confrontations with Russian forces.

Furthermore, Ukraine’s determination and resilience in the face of adversity cannot be underestimated. The country’s citizens and armed forces have shown unwavering commitment to defending their sovereignty, driving them to devise innovative strategies and tactics to outmaneuver the Russian military.
