Toll In Deadliest Russian Strike On Kyiv Rises To 32

32 people were killed in a missile strike on December 29 in Kiev, according to authorities on Thursday. This makes it the bloodiest attack on the Ukrainian capital since the start of the conflict.

Russia has increased its aircraft attacks against Ukraine in recent days. Ukraine claims to have enough military to repel a few strong attacks, but it will soon require additional assistance.

“The total number of dead as a result of the enemy missile attack on December 29 is 32 people,” said the head of the Kyiv military administration, Sergiy Popko.

Thirty people were wounded, he added.

All the 32 killed were in a warehouse, Ukrainian authorities said. Russia says it only targets military infrastructure.

Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko had said on Saturday that the December 29 strike was “the largest in terms of civilian casualties.”

Russia had on that day launched 158 missiles and drones over Ukraine, the air force said, in an attempt to overwhelm air defences.

The attack killed at least 55 people and wounded 170.

Ukraine has retaliated and the Russian border region of Belgorod faced a wave of attacks over the weekend, with 25 people killed — an unprecedented toll since the beginning of the offensive almost two years ago.
