Russian forces struck missiles on Ukrainian cities including the capital Kyiv, Odesa, and Kharkiv on Thursday morning, while Ukrainian forces keep repelling fierce assaults around Bakhmut town.

According to Ukrainian officials, the missile did not only hit Kyiv, Odesa, and Kharkiv but also targeted some cities in the west and central Ukraine.

The missile attacks have caused power cuts in certain cities with possible casualties, with no confirmed details available as of now.

The attack comes as the ‘Wanger Group’ fighters that fight alongside Russian forces on Wednesday claimed to have completely captured Bakhmut, a mining town in the east of Ukraine.

Contrary to Russia’s claims, Ukrainian forces said they have managed to push back intense Russian attacks on the eastern Bakhmut, half of which is controlled by Ukrainian forces.

Kharkiv region Governor Oleh Synehubov said the city and region had been hit by 15 strikes, with targets including infrastructure. Other strikes were reported in the central city of Dnipro and regions throughout the country.

This comes as the European Union Foreign Ministers agreed to send more artillery to Ukraine to defend itself against Russian aggression. It is stated that Ukrainian forces fire shells faster than the EU states can manufacture.

In the meantime, Ukrainian forces are preparing for a counteroffensive attack when the weather improves and it receives more military equipment including thanks from its Western allies.

With the continuous military support of the US and NATO member states to Ukraine, apparently, Russia has no intention to slow down missile strikes on Ukrainian cities.

Since the outbreak of the Ukraine conflict in February 2022, Russia has annexed four Ukrainian cities and destroyed another six, the consequences of which are very heavy for Ukraine.
