Kiev Governor Oleksiy Kuleba said an unspecified “infrastructure object” was hit in the Vyshhorod district north of the capital. No casualties were reported.

Northern Ukraine and Kiev, as well as cities on the outskirts of the Ukrainian capital, had managed to resist an initial intense Russian advance at the start of the war. After months of focusing its attacks on the east of the country, Moscow is starting to shift its focus to other areas.

“A restless morning. Rocket terror again. We will not give up. We will not be intimidated. Ukraine is an independent, free and indivisible state. And it will always be that way,” Zelensky wrote on social media.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian officials have announced a counter-offensive to retake the occupied Kherson region in the south of the country, territory seized by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s forces at the start of the war.
