War in Ukraine: Russian missiles hit Kherson killing at least four

A barrage of missiles hit the recently liberated city of Kherson killing four people and injuring at least 10 others, according to the Ukrainian military.

The latest attack marks an escalation of hostilities by Russian forces after their recent withdrawal from the southern city

Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, criticized Moscow, likening the strikes to terrorist attacks.

“I receive almost every hour reports of strikes by the occupiers in Kherson and other communities in the region. This terror began as soon as the Russian army was forced to flee from the Kherson region,” he said.

“This is the revenge of those who lost. They do not know how to fight. The only thing they can still do is terror. Either energy terror, or artillery terror, or missile terror – that’s all that Russia has descended under its current leaders, ” stressed the Ukrainian president.

Missiles fell on the Kyiv region as well. In Vyshgorod, a kindergarten and a school were damaged by Russian bombing.

In the capital, 60% of the population remains without electricity as winter sets in and temperatures drop to freezing.

Russian forces have targeted the country’s energy infrastructure and subjected millions to emergency blackouts.

Hospitals in Kramatorsk have had to rely on generators to keep the lights on while they treat soldiers and civilians.
