Ukraine, officials say | The Scotsman"/>
According to The Hill, Russia bombarded Ukraine with a "massive rocket onslaught" of missile strikes that damaged crucial infrastructure and residential structures across the nation.
"It's been a trying night. A large-scale rocket attack across the country... "Attacks on essential infrastructure and residential structures," Zelensky wrote on Telegram.
"The enemy launched 81 missiles in an attempt to terrify Ukrainians again, resorting to their dismal methods. "Occupation forces can only frighten citizens," he continued.
The president of Ukraine said that assaults had targeted a number of areas around the country, including Odesa, Dnipro, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia, home to Europe's largest nuclear power plant, and the nation's capital, Kyiv. The strikes harmed and killed some individuals, according to Zelensky.
Zelensky and other senior Kyiv officials shifted their focus immediately to defending the country's energy infrastructure and restoring electricity to damaged areas.
"Despite hundreds of Russian strikes, we will all work together to secure Ukraine's invincibility. We're hard at work. "We shall win!" said the president.
According to The Associated Press, Ukraine's senior commander of the armed forces, Valerii Zaluzhnyi, Russia launched 81 missiles and eight Shahed drones into Ukraine on Thursday.
The attacks came as Ukraine defends the besieged town of Bakhmut. According to Reuters, Russia's military ministry claimed the additional attacks were carried out in retribution for an alleged raid last week on a village in Russia's Bryansk area.
"Russia unleashed a huge missile and drone strike on Ukraine overnight, causing to loss of lives and destroying civilian infrastructure. "There is no military goal, only Russian brutality," stated Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.
"A Special Tribunal will hold [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and his accomplices accountable," Kuleba said.
