In the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, residents were instructed to seek shelter immediately after an air alarm was triggered on Monday morning. Several explosions were heard in the city, and debris from a rocket damaged a residential building. The Ukrainian Air Force reported that two ballistic missiles were fired over Kiev using hypersonic missiles, according to US Ambassador Bridget Brink.

The Russian army has been increasing air strikes against Ukraine’s energy supply, causing disruptions in cities like Charkiw.
