16 Killed in Ukraine as Russia Launches Wave of Missile & Drone Strikes on Cities

HeadlineDec 29, 2023

At least 16 people have been killed in Ukraine after Russia launched a massive wave of missile and drone attacks targeting the capital Kyiv and other cities, including Lviv in the west, Odesa and Zaporizhzhia in the south, and Dnipro and Kharkiv in the east. The Ukrainian military said it has “never seen so many locations targeted simultaneously.” The attacks come days after Ukraine struck a Russian warship in occupied Crimea.

Meanwhile, The New York Times is reporting that Russian President Vladimir Putin has been signaling for months through intermediaries that he is open to a ceasefire deal that would allow Russia to keep Ukrainian land it has seized during the war.
