news from ukraine kyiv bombed dead wounded



Ukraine is increasingly in the whirlwind of an endless war. In the aftermath of the explosion that damaged the Crimean Bridge over the Kerch Strait, Russia takes revenge by bombing kyiv and causing deaths and injuries.

At least four explosions hit the center of the Ukrainian capital this morning, according to the Kyiv Independent in a tweet. The explosions occurred around 8:15 a.m. local time (7:15 a.m. in Italy). The anti-aircraft sirens sounded several tens of minutes before the detonations. Videos posted on social networks show a few large columns of black smoke in different parts of the city. Many ambulances headed downtown to the site of the blasts. The last Russian attack on kyiv dates back to June 26.
