Russian forces have launched a fresh set of missiles towards Ukraine, according to Ukrainian officials.
“We see that strategic bombers have taken off and the first wave of missiles was already launched,” said Yurii Ihnat, spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force.
There may be several waves of attacks, added Ihnat.
Air defense systems are operating, but there is “no information” on the number of missiles launched or how many have been shot down, he said.
The governors of Odesa, Poltava and Vinnytsia regions have announced that missiles are incoming on social media.
Kyiv’s air defense systems are “working” around the Ukrainian capital as there is a “movement of missiles towards the region,” said Oleksii Kuleba, head of Kyiv’s regional military administration, on Telegram. He urged residents to stay in shelters.
CNN teams in Kyiv have reported that air raid sirens have sounded.
As of yet there have not been any confirmed strikes.
