Ukraine war: At least three dead after Russia launches 76 missiles

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

Russian missiles reigned down across Ukraine once again this morning, knocking out power in major cities, and further underlining Moscow’s determination to cripple the country’s civilian infrastructure as winter sets in.

Ukraine’s state energy company said that energy consumption had fallen by 50 per cent and would take longer to restore than after previous attacks.

In total, 76 missiles were fired, striking energy targets in Kyiv, Kharkiv, and hitting an apartment block in Kryvyi Rih, killing three people. Four children were among the injured. And another person was killed by shelling in Kherson.
