Russian Defense Ministry Warns Of ‘High-Precision Strikes’ In Kyiv

Russian forces launched attacks on civilian sites in Kyiv on Tuesday, including Kyiv TV tower and the city’s Babi Yar Holocaust Memorial, killing at least five and wounding several others, according to Ukrainian officials.

Ukraine’s Foreign Affairs Minister Dmytro Kuleba said a “barbaric” airstrike hit directly in front of a government building in Ukraine’s second-largest city, Kharkiv, killing an estimated 10 people, according to Ukrainian emergency services.

“Following barbaric attacks on our cities and the murder of 16 Ukrainian children, I call on all states and international organizations to join Ukraine in deputizing the world: ending Putin’s influence in politics, diplomacy, business, sports, culture, research & other spheres,” said Kuleba.

Meanwhile, a large convoy of Russian troops was seen near Kyiv and Russian forces have reportedly entered the southern city of Kherson.

A television tower in Kyiv, Ukraine, was targeted in a missile strike that killed five people just minutes after Russia warned Ukrainians to flee the region.

It remains unclear whether a missile directly struck the tower, but video footage of the attack shows black smoke around the tower. Ukraine’s adviser to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Anton Herashchenko, said the tower’s signal may have been disrupted.

Russian state media claimed the country’s defense ministry was planning more strikes on Kyiv’s intel and Military Relay Facilities. The Kremlin reportedly justified the strikes as preventing “information attacks” against Russia.

In a statement announcing its intention for more strikes, the Russian defense ministry said it urges “Ukrainian citizens who are being used by nationalists to carry out provocations against Russia, as well as Kyiv residents residing near relay stations to leave their home.”
