Smoke was seen on the outskirts of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv after a Russian missile attack on Monday.

Russia launched more than 50 missiles at critical infrastructure in Ukraine, including the capital Kyiv, on Monday, causing power and water outages, Ukrainian authorities said.

Kyiv Mayor Vitaly Klitschko said that 80% of residents do not have water, and about 350,000 apartments do not have electricity.

Energy facilities in the northeastern city of Kharkiv were also attacked.

Russia said its high-precision, long-range weapons targeted Ukraine’s military command and energy systems.
