Meanwhile, in Kharkiv, in addition to hitting energy infrastructure facilities, the metro is on fire. The cause can be both a hit and a short circuit as a result of power outages – in some places, the wiring can be decades old.

There were about 6-7 arrivals in Kyiv in the morning. Attacks have been made on law enforcement agencies and critical infrastructure facilities.
