Early this morning, explosions also resounded in the hometown of the Ukrainian president, Kryvyi Rih, and local residents were warned that "missiles are coming".
Also, air raid sirens sounded this morning in more than half of Ukraine's regions: in Chernihiv, Sumy, Kharkiv and Odesa regions.
Sirens sounded last night due to an air attack on Kirovograd, Cherkasy, Poltava, Dnipropetrovsk, Mykolaiv and Kyiv regions, as well as in the capital of Ukraine, Kyiv, according to Tass.
