The center of kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, is in chaos. There are fires, explosions, smoke and victims in the streets after the five Russian attacks perpetrated this Monday, October 10. So far in Ukraine, at least ten people have been reported dead and sixty others have been injured.
Vladimir Putin’s military forces chose easy targets to carry out coordinated and deadly bombardments. There are charred bodies inside vehicles that burn in the vicinity of the National University and others on the Glass Bridge, a path for pedestrians and bicycles.

With high caliber
Kemlin troops detonated 83 missiles, but half were shot down by the Ukrainian Armed Forces, according to Ukrainian Air Force spokesman Yurii Ihnat, who rules out that Russia’s attack on kyiv represents retaliation for the recent explosion of the Kerch bridge that connects Crimea with Russia.
The Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Dmytro Kuleba, focused on the attack against kyiv in the same direction and urged “stop blaming the victim of the aggression by suggesting that Putin was provoked.”
For Kuleba, the detonations are part of the “constant hits on Ukraine with missiles since before the explosion of the bridge”, because Moscow is “desperate for defeats on the battlefield” but when Russia’s attack on kyiv occurred, after three months without military operations against the capital seems to contradict this version.
An order with high precision
The invaders also included the use of 17 Shahed-type kamikaze drones to attack Ukrainian cities from the territory of Belarus and Crimea, including Ternopil, in Dnipro, Mikolaiv and Zaporizhia where Anatoly Kurtev, secretary of the city council of that city in southeastern Ukraine, reported. A victim.
Putin ordered the attacks. He recognized it through a video where he states that he used “high precision” weapons. He did it by violating the airspace of Moldova. “Three cruise missiles launched over Ukraine this morning from Russian ships in the Black Sea crossed Moldova’s airspace,” Moldova’s Foreign Minister Nicu Popescu said.
The senior official reported that he summoned Oleg Vasnetsov, the Russian ambassador in Chisinau, to offer an “explanation” about the events because Moldova condemns “Russia’s continued aggression against Ukraine.”
The attacks damaged 11 critical infrastructure sites in eight regions of Ukraine according to Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal’s report. Electricity has already begun to fail and the population must prepare for temporary power and water supply and mobile phone interruptions.
“The main objective of these war criminals is to sow panic, scare and leave Ukrainians without light and heating,” he said as images of children in shelters singing the Ukrainian anthem go viral.
The Ukrainian president, Volodimir Zelenski, asks the German chancellor, Olaf Scholz, and the French president, Emmanuel Macron, a “hard” response against Russia after the bombings. He demands an emergency meeting of the G7.
