Multiple explosions rocked Kyiv overnight as Russian warplanes fired missiles into the Caspian Sea. Vladimir Putin warned the West about supplying long-range missiles for Ukraine.

Vitali Klitschko stated that at least one person was taken into hospital by the explosions, but no deaths were reported as of Sunday morning.

Ukrainian officials claimed Russia was attacking Kyiv’s railway infrastructure. However, Moscow claims it has destroyed T-72 tanks that were supplied from Eastern Europe to Ukraine.

The fighting in eastern Ukraine has been concentrated in the last weeks. Serhiy Haidai, Luhansk Governor, stated that Russian forces were pushed back in Severodonetsk.

He stated that the control of the contested factory town was now “more-or-less, divided in half”.

El Pais reports that Spain is currently preparing to send heavy weapons, including anti-aircraft missiles, and Leopard battle tanks to Ukraine.


Key developments:


Explosions in Kyiv

As the sun rose on Kyiv’s Sunday morning, after the Darnytskyi incident, dark smoke rose to the sky.

Vitaly Klitschko, mayor of Dniprovskyi, said that explosions struck Dniprovskyi areas.

According to preliminary data, (Russians launched missiles from Tu95 aircraft from Caspian Sea),” the Ukrainian air force stated in a statement.

Since late April, when a Russian missile struck the building where a Radio Liberty producer lived, the missiles were the first missiles to strike the capital.

Telegram: Mr Klitschko posted that the blasts could be heard in Dniprovsky and Darnytsky districts.

He wrote, “There are currently not casualties from missile attacks on infrastructure.”

“One person was taken to hospital for injuries.” Services are still available in the affected areas.

Mykhailo Podolyak, the Ukrainian presidential advisor, claimed that Russia was using “new insidious attack” to bombard Ukraine and attacked French President Emmanuel Macron for saying that Moscow shouldn’t be humiliated.

Moscow claims to have struck destroyed the tanks of Ukraine’s allies

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, high-precision and long-range air-launched rockets were used. The strikes also destroyed T-72 tanks from Eastern European countries that were located in buildings within a train car repair shop.

The head of Ukraine’s railway system denied that tanks were present.

In excerpts from a forthcoming interview, President Putin stated that the West would supply him with food.

Ukraine will be using longer-range missiles for its defense.

Although he did not give any details about the targets of his threat of military escalation, it came just days after the United States announced that they would provide $700 million in security assistance to Ukraine.

These weapons include four medium-range, precision-guided rocket systems, helicopters and Javelin anti-tank weapon system systems, radars, tactical vehicle, and many more.

Ukrainian police shared a video that shows the effects of Russian bombardment in Lysychansk, Luhansk.

Serhiy Haidai (Governor of Luhansk Province) stated that Ukrainian forces had retaken a large part from Russian troops and seized about half of the city.

“It was a difficult situation. The Russians controlled 70% of the city. But, over the last two days, they have been

The Ministry of Defence of Britain (MoD), stated that Ukraine’s counterattack “likely weakens the operational momentum Russian forces previously gathered through concentrating combat units, firepower”

They also stated that the Kremlin forces in this area are “poorly equipped, trained” and have no heavy equipment. This is likely part of an effort to reduce casualties caused by regular Russian military.

Russia could take Severodonetsk or Lysychansk. The province of Luhansk will be under Moscow’s command, and the whole Donbas region, which includes Luhansk/Donetsk, would be in its control.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the president of Ukraine, stated on Saturday night that “The situation remains very challenging in Severodonetsk where street fighting continues.”

“We must stop Russia”

Last week, Oleksiy Reznikov, the defence minister, said that Russia continues to try to occupy all of its states.

“It’s currently impossible to predict when war will end. However, my optimistic predictions are that it will happen this year.”

According to Mr Reznikov, other countries will also be at risk unless the Russians leave Ukraine. He said: “Next will come Poland, the Baltic states, Slovakia and many others.

“This is why we must stop Russia, and (restrain them) in the future.”

After President Macron’s comments that Moscow should not be “humiliated” over its invasion of its neighbor, his warning about Russia’s ambitions was received.

M. Macron spoke to a regional newspaper and said that he would not embarrass Russia in order for the fighting to stop. He added: “We mustn’t humiliate Russia so we can build an exit ramp via diplomatic means.”

Dmytro Kuleba, Ukraine’s foreign minister, tweeted in response: “Calls for Russia to be humiliated can only humiliate France and any other country that would demand it.”

He said, “We all need to focus on how we can put Russia in its proper place.”
