In response to the blowing up of the Crimean bridge connecting Russian-occupied Crimea with the mainland, Putin struck at Ukraine’s infrastructure.
The Ukrainian cities of Kyiv, Zaporozhye, Dnipro, Khmelnitsky, Kropyvnytsky, Lvov, and Odessa were subjected to rocket attacks.
Rocket strikes were carried out on critical facilities, civil support systems, thermal power plants, bridges, hydraulic systems, and residential buildings.
Zaporozhye and Kyiv were especially affected. More than 40 civilians were killed in Zaporozhye, fewer in other cities of Ukraine.
