Kyiv: On Monday, Ukraine’s presidency said there were strikes in “many” Ukrainian cities, a day after Moscow blamed Kyiv for an explosion on a bridge connecting Crimea to Russia.
“Ukraine is being bombarded with missiles. There is information about strikes in many cities in our country,” Kyrylo Tymoshenko, deputy head of the president’s office, said on social media, urging citizens to “remain in shelters. According to Kyiv, Russia launched 75 missiles at Ukraine on Monday morning.
The explosions struck Kyiv around 8:15 a.m. local time (05:15 GMT), and an AFP journalist in the city saw numerous ambulances heading towards the blast site. On Monday morning, at least five explosions were heard in Kyiv. “Several explosions in the Shevchenkivskyi district — in the heart of the capital,” Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko tweeted.
According to Russian news agencies, Vladimir Putin was speaking during a meeting with the head of the investigation committee he has formed to look into the bombing.
