Russia launched another air raid on the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, on Thursday morning. A spokesman for President Volodymyr Zelensky said that important infrastructure had been bombed. Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin is visiting Kazakhstan to discuss the war with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
It is not clear what the targets of the airstrikes were. Oleksiy Kuleba, the military governor of the Kyiv region, reported in Telegram that kamikazedronate was used with explosives.
The Ukrainian capital has been under fire for several days. Russia has fired missiles at several cities in Ukraine since the explosion of the Crimean bridge on Saturday. Russian President Vladimir Putin said the attacks were “revenge” for the attack on the bridge, which is important to Russia.
Mykolaiv, a city in southern Ukraine, was attacked by the Russian army during the night from Wednesday to Thursday. Mayor Oleksandr Senkevich reported this.
An apartment complex could have been bombed and several floors were completely destroyed. It is not yet known if there were any injuries.
Putin meets Erdogan
Meanwhile, Putin has arrived in Kazakhstan for a regional summit. Putin talks with Erdogan on the sidelines of that summit.
Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar spoke with his Russian counterpart Sergei Shoigu earlier this week. The two sides agreed on the need for a ceasefire between Russia and Ukraine.
Turkey has been trying to mediate between the two countries since the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, with which it has good relations.
