Russia sends in elite troops to stop Ukrainian breakthrough

Russia launched an overnight air attack against Ukraine on Sunday, sending missiles over Kyiv and other parts of the country, authorities said.

The Ukrainian military reported shooting down four cruise missiles of up to eight total airborne targets detected, adding that the rest of the targets were “probably false”.

It also said there were no immediate reports of strikes.

Two people were reportedly wounded and 10 buildings damaged by falling missile debris in one unspecified area of the region.

“Enemy targets moving in the direction of Kyiv were destroyed by air defence forces,” Serhiy Popko, head of Kyiv’s military administration, said on the Telegram messaging app. The attack involved cruise missiles, he said.

All of Ukraine was under air raid alerts for about three hours early on Sunday before they were cleared at around 6 am.
