At least 16 people were injured on Tuesday in Russia’s massive missile and drone attack on the Ukrainian capital, the city’s mayor Vitali Klitschko said on Telegram.

The attack, the second in less than a week, caused fires in a high-rise apartment block, a supermarket and a warehouse in different parts of Kiev, Klitschko said.

The debris from intercepted missiles also fell on two other apartment buildings and a non-residential facility, the Kiev City Military Administration (KCMA) said in a statement.

A gas pipeline and a water main were damaged in the central Podil district, it said, adding that the attack also caused power outages in four districts in the capital.

The Russian military fired cruise missiles against Ukraine from 16 Tu-95 air bombers and ballistic Kinzhal missiles from several MiG-31 fighters, said Ukraine’s Air Force.

At least 30 people were killed on Friday in Russia’s mass strike on Kiev.
