On the morning of 10 October 2022, the Russian military launched a series of missile attacks on the Ukrainian capital Kyiv and multiple other cities across the country, including Kharkiv, Lviv and Odesa. Ukraine’s air force stated that 83 projectiles were launched toward the country, but they were able to intercept 43 of them. The missiles struck parks and roads across Kyiv, including in Shevchenkivskyi district. Meanwhile in Lviv, the missiles struck energy infrastructure and caused widespread blackouts. At least 10 people have been reported killed and 60 others wounded in the latest attacks. The Russian military has stepped up its attacks on Ukraine as retribution for an 8 October explosion that seriously damaged a bridge over the Kerch Strait, which links the Russian-occupied Crimean Peninsula to Russia.
