The civilian deaths and destruction wrought by Russia’s ‘high-precision’ missile strikes Among the ‘targets’ claimed to have been ‘reached’ are a Kyiv office building, a cycling bridge, playgrounds, and apartment blocks
On the morning of October 10, Kyiv and 14 other Ukrainian regions were subjected to massive shelling. According to the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Russia fired more than 80 missiles into Ukrainian cities. Half of those missiles were shot down by air defense systems. The Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the shelling was in response to the Crimean Bridge explosion on October 8. Russia attributed the explosion to the work of Ukraine’s security service, accusing Kyiv of terrorism. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, today’s strikes targeted military, communications, and energy facilities in Ukraine.
