Russia carried out 85 missile strikes across Ukraine: Ukrainian president

The energy system of the war-battered country was hit hard by the missile attacks, Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed on Telegram, adding: "85 missile attacks were carried out throughout Ukraine, mostly aimed at energy infrastructure.”

He underscored that another 20 missile attacks could be coming, urging the public to stay in shelters.

Russia will not achieve its goal through these attacks, he stressed.

Ukrainian officials reported explosions in several cities, including Rivne, Lviv, Vinnytsia, and Kovel.

Parts of Rivne, the administrative center of the western Rivne region, were left without electricity after blasts at a critical infrastructure location, Mayor Alexander Tretyak said on Telegram.

Russian officials, for their part, reported that two people were killed and three injured in a missile attack by Ukraine in the border region of Belgorod, Russia.
