Russia launched yet another missile attack against Ukraine in the early hours on Thursday morning, firing 32 missiles at cities across the country and killing a 79-year-old woman.


Missiles strikes were reported in the central regions of Dnipropetrovsk and Kirovograd, as well as in northern and western Ukraine, where an industrial site in Lviv, not far from the Polish border, was also hit.


Dnipropetrovsk regional governor Sergiy Lysak posted images on Telegram of firefighters working in the debris of partially destroyed residential homes. The strikes killed a 79-year-old woman, Lysak said.


According to the Ukrainian military, 16 of the 32 missiles fired by Russia were shot down.


Air raid sirens rang out across the country at 2:35am Kyiv time and the all clear was given at 4:41am.



Since October, Russia has launched regular waves of attacks that have crippled the Ukrainian energy infrastructure and left millions in the cold in the middle of winter.


Some fear that, after months of military setbacks, Moscow may be preparing a new large-scale offensive in late winter or early spring.
