Russia launches a massive missile attack on Ukraine shortly before the New Year

Russia launched drone and missile attacks on Ukraine on Thursday. On the last day of the year, there was once again a weather warning everywhere. The authorities called on people to seek shelter in bunkers.

Explosions have been reported in the regions of western Ukraine

Explosions were also reported from the Vinnytsia and Zhytomyr regions in western Ukraine and from the Mykolaiv region in southern Ukraine. According to the deputy head of the presidential office, Kirillo Tymoshenko, the Khmelnytsky region of western Ukraine was attacked by drones. There were two injuries. As a precaution, the power supply was cut off in several areas to minimize damage from power supply collisions.

Military experts warned of air strikes at the beginning of the year

British military experts had already warned on Saturday morning of new air strikes on Ukraine’s infrastructure at the beginning of the year. According to the daily intelligence update from London, the strikes have so far been carried out at intervals of seven to ten days. “It is almost certain that Russia will continue this pattern of overwhelming Ukrainian air defences,” the statement said. She added that there was a “realistic possibility” that Russia would strike again in the coming days “to break the morale of the Ukrainian people during the New Year period”.
