Russian missile and air strikes have caused damage to the north and south of the Ukrainian capital in the early hours of today.
According to local officials, in Chernihiv, some 100 kilometers north of Kyiv, the hotel Ukraine — a landmark in the city — was hit overnight.
Head of the Chernihiv region administration Vyacheslav Chaus, said the enemy continues to launch air and missile strikes on the city of Chernihiv and Civilians are dying, many people are being injured.
Chernihiv has been surrounded by Russian forces for more than a week and video from the city shows widespread damage from missiles and airstrikes.
Chaus added that the city has “no electricity, almost no water, gas, and heat,” and while efforts to restore electricity yesterday were successful, Russians hit an electricity network again.
Social media video from Vasylkiv, south of Kyiv, showed a fuel dump on fire after a strike in the early hours today, and the military airfield there appears to have been heavily damaged.
Meanwhile, the Russian Ministry of Defense had said earlier that a high-precision long-range weapon struck the military airfield in Vasylkiv.
