Russia Launches Hundreds of Strikes Across Ukraine

HeadlineApr 18, 2022

The Russian military says it has launched hundreds of strikes across Ukraine over the past 24 hours. Russia claims it has destroyed 16 Ukrainian military facilities in overnight strikes. In western Ukraine, at least seven people died earlier today after Russian missile strikes hit the city of Lviv. One blast shattered windows of a hotel housing evacuees from other parts of Ukraine who had fled to Lviv for safety. On Sunday, five people died in a rocket attack in central Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city. The strikes come as Russia is escalating its offensive in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine. Russian troops have entered the town of Kreminna after weeks of bombardment.
