Mother and Child Among Victims of Russian Missile Strikes in Ukraine

...By Enitan Thompson for TDPel Media.

At least 12 people, including a mother and her three-year-old daughter, were killed as Russia launched a series of missile strikes against cities across Ukraine.


The attack involved more than 20 cruise missiles and two drones fired at the capital Kyiv and other parts of Ukraine.

The first attack against Kyiv in nearly two months caused air raid sirens to sound across the city.

Fragments from intercepted missiles or drones damaged power lines and a road in one neighborhood in the capital, but there were no immediate reports of any casualties or direct hits.

Russia launched a series of missile strikes across Ukraine resulting in the deaths of at least 12 people, including a mother and her three-year-old daughter.

The attack involved more than 20 cruise missiles and two drones fired at the capital Kyiv and other parts of Ukraine.

At least 10 people died including a child and 11 people needed hospital treatment in the central city of Uman after missiles hit residential buildings at around 4.30am, officials said.

It was feared the death toll could rise as images showed rescuers in a desperate search for survivors in the rubble of a nine-storey block of flats that was hit.

A woman, 31 and her daughter, three, were killed in the city of Dnipro, according to the local mayor.

There were also explosions reported in the cities of Kremenchuk and Poltava.

Air raid sirens sounded around Kyiv in the first attack against the city in nearly two months.

Twenty-one out of 23 missiles and two attack drones were shot down by Ukraine’s air defence system, across the country, officials said in a Telegram post.

The attacks come as Ukrainian forces are preparing for a military offensive with new equipment, including tanks, supplied by Western allies.

More than 30,000 troops are estimated to make up the new brigades. “

This will put Ukraine in a strong position to continue to retake occupied territory,” Stoltenberg said in Brussels.

The attack is a blatant violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

It is a continuation of the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, which began in 2014 when Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine.

Since then, the conflict has escalated, and thousands of people have been killed.

The recent missile strikes indicate that the situation in the region remains unstable and that the threat of further violence is still present.

The fact that Ukraine’s air defense system managed to shoot down most of the missiles and drones is a testament to the country’s military capabilities.

However, the death toll and the destruction caused by the attacks highlight the need for a peaceful resolution to the conflict.


The recent delivery of military equipment by Western allies to Ukraine may further escalate the conflict, and it is essential to ensure that such equipment is not used to perpetuate violence against civilians.


The ongoing conflict in Ukraine is a reminder of the devastating consequences of political and military aggression.

The loss of innocent lives and the destruction of homes and infrastructure is a tragedy that must be addressed.

It is essential for all parties involved to engage in constructive dialogue and work towards a peaceful resolution to the conflict.

The international community has a crucial role to play in facilitating such dialogue and supporting efforts towards peace.

The recent missile strikes by Russia are a stark reminder of the urgency of the situation and the need for immediate action to prevent further violence.
