Russia shells key Ukrainian infrastructure

Russian missiles struck Ukraine on Thursday in the biggest wave of attacks in weeks, damaging power plants and other critical infrastructure during the cold winter.

Russia fired 69 missiles at power facilities and Ukrainian forces shot down 54, Ukrainian military chief Gen. Valerii Zaluzhnyi said.

Local authorities said the attacks killed at least two people in Kharkiv, Ukraine's second-largest city. The attacks also wounded at least six people across the country, although the death toll from the attacks was rising as officials assessed the day's events.

Russia sent explosive drones into selected regions overnight before expanding the bombardment with air and sea missiles, the Ukrainian air force said. Air raid sirens sounded across the country and the military activated air defense systems in Kyiv, the regional administration said.
