Putin Fires Missiles Towards Ukraine

(PresidentialHill.com)- In a massive airstrike on Monday, Russia bombarded downtown Kyiv with missiles, escalating the conflict and leaving death and ruin in its wake.

According to reports, sixty-four people were hurt, and at least 11 people died, according to Ukrainian officials.

The Ukrainian military reported that at least 84 cruise missiles were launched by Moscow on Monday, 43 of which were shot down by missile defense systems. The volley also included 24 Russian attack drones, 13 of which were destroyed.

In a brief televised interview on Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that it was unthinkable to leave such atrocities unanswered. Responses from Russia would be severe and scaled to the degree of threats to the Russian Federation if attempts to carry out terrorist attacks on Russian soil persist.

Vladimir Putin said he had authorized the attacks on ten cities in reprisal for a weekend assault on a vital bridge connecting it to the Crimean Peninsula it had annexed. He stated that more strikes were planned.

Reports show that air raid sirens wailed throughout Ukraine for four hours, and essential infrastructure, including government buildings, water, and utilities, were reportedly destroyed.

As he pleaded with Europe to provide more missile defenses, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Russia was trying to annihilate Ukraine and wipe it off the map. President Joe Biden promised to provide cutting-edge air defense systems during a call he held on Monday with Zelensky.

According to a White House readout of the discussion, Biden emphasized his disapproval of Russia’s missile strikes across Ukraine, particularly in Kyiv, and communicated his sympathies to the loved ones of those murdered and injured in these senseless acts. President Biden promised to give Ukraine the defensive assistance it needs, including cutting-edge air defense equipment.

Of course, Biden never asked the US taxpayer for permission and never told us when it would stop.
The massive 12-mile bridge was constructed after Moscow invaded Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in 2014, an annexation that the West deemed unlawful.

Kyiv has not claimed responsibility for the explosion on the bridge, but the Ukrainian response to the damage has been joyous and victorious.
