Early-morning strikes in Kyiv injured three people in the Solomyanskyi district, where several cars had caught fire and a building was damaged from falling rocket debris, Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko wrote on Telegram. Several explosions were heard in the capital, rattling windows and setting off car alarms in one of the loudest attacks in Kyiv in months.
The majority of the targets were destroyed in the air, officials said, and debris landed in several different districts, including on a zoo in Shevchenkivskyi and in a city park in the Darnytsia district.
Here’s the latest on the war and its ripple effects across the globe.
Luhansk, controlled by Russian-backed separatists since 2014, sits 60 miles east of the front line and has been out of reach of most Ukrainian weapons, making it a place of relative calm. Since Friday, however, it has come under regular attack. Russia has linked the explosions in Luhansk to long-range missiles, recently supplied to Ukraine by Britain, and which could show Western support at work.
