Russia Launches Missile Attack On Ukraine Few Hours To New Year

Russia has carried out its second major round of missile attacks on Ukraine in three days, Ukrainian officials have said, with explosions being reported throughout the country on New Year’s Eve.

At least one person has been killed and eight others wounded after a series of explosions hit the capital. Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said one of those wounded by the blasts was a Japanese journalist who had been taken to hospital.

A hotel just south of Kyiv’s city centre was hit, and a residential building in another district was damaged, according to the city administration.

The governor of the surrounding Kyiv region, Oleksiy Kuleba, had warned of a possible incoming missile attack and said air defences in the region were engaging targets.

“The terrorist country launched several waves of missiles. They are wishing us a happy New Year. But we will persevere,” Kuleba wrote on Telegram in a separate post after explosions shook the capital.
