O previous balance showed at least 24 deaths and more than 100 injuries.

“Russia has used almost every type of weapon in its arsenal,” declared Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on the social network X (formerly Twitter).

According to the Ukrainian General Staff, Russia fired about 160 devices, including cruise missiles and Shahed explosive drones (unmanned aircraft). Ukrainian anti-aircraft defense managed to shoot down 88 missiles and 27 drones, he said.

“This is the most massive missile attack” excluding the first days of the war, said Air Force spokesman Yuri Ignat.

The attacks targeted populated areas in several Ukrainian cities, including Kyiv, Lviv, Khmelnytskyy, Cherkassy, ​​Sumi, Dnipro, Kharkiv, Odessa and Zaporijia, according to the UN Human Rights office.

The attacks hit essential infrastructure, industrial, military and civilian installations, the General Staff said in a report.

The military offensive launched on February 24, 2022 by Russia in Ukraine caused, according to the most recent UN data, the worst refugee crisis in Europe since the Second World War (1939-1945).

The Russian invasion – justified by Russian President Vladimir Putin with the need to “denazify” and demilitarize Ukraine for Russia’s security – was condemned by most of the international community, which has responded by sending weapons to Ukraine and imposing Russia from political and economic sanctions.
