“There was no attack on Kiev. All damage in the city reported by the Kiev regime is due to fallout from foreign and Ukrainian anti-aircraft missiles installed in residential areas of the Ukrainian capital,” said Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov.
He said the Russian army had launched “massive strikes” against “the Ukrainian military command system and associated energy infrastructure” the day before.
“The target of the attacks was achieved, all indicated targets were hit,” he continued, assuring that these bombings had made it possible to “damage the movement of Ukrainian army reserves, foreign weapons, military equipment and ammunition by rail” .
Ukraine, including Kiev, was largely without electricity and running water on Thursday, the day after these new massive attacks by Russia, specifically targeting energy infrastructure, as winter sets in.
