Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, announced on his social media account that more than 120 missiles were fired by Russia. The mayor of Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, Vitali Klitschko, announced that 16 Russian missiles targeting Kiev were shot down.
Ukrainian officials stated that the Russian army targeted different regions with a total of 120 missiles today. It was learned that 3 people were injured in the explosions and at least 2 houses were damaged due to missile fragments dropped.
“More than 120 missiles were fired by Russia over Ukraine to destroy critical infrastructure and kill civilians en masse,” said Podolyak, an adviser to President Zelensky.
In the continuation of his post, Podolyak cynically criticized Russia’s statements within the scope of the “peace negotiation”. “We are waiting for more proposals on a peaceful solution, on security guarantees for the Russian Federation,” Podolyak said.
