Russia launches new attack on Ukrainian capital of Kyiv

Russia launched a new attack on Ukraine’s capital city of Kyiv on Sunday.

The attack occurred on the same day that the world’s G7 leaders gathered for a summit in Germany.

Attack from Belarus

“The attacks were reported to be launched from Belarusian airspace, just hours before Russian President Vladimir Putin was scheduled to meet with Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko in St. Petersburg, Russia,” VOA News reported.

“Zelenskyy said in his daily address Saturday that ‘Ukraine needs more armed assistance, and that air defense systems — the modern systems that our partners have – should be not in training areas or storage facilities, but in Ukraine, where they are now needed. Needed more than anywhere else in the world,'” the report added.

The damage

“Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said the missiles hit at least two residential buildings, and killed one person and injured six others, including a 7-year-old girl and her mother,” ABC 10 News reported.

“Associated Press journalists saw emergency workers battling flames and rescuing civilians from the buildings,” it added.

The missile strikes come as U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned world leaders of catastrophic consequences if Russian President Vladimir Putin wins the war.

The new attack also comes as many nations have returned their embassies to Kyiv, making the attacks much more personal for other nations.
