Russian missiles fired in Ukraine days after leaving Kherson making the attack one of the largest waves of missiles ever fired at Ukraine. Officials say at least one person was found dead in the city of Kyiv, which is the capital.

There were strikes from the western city of Lviv to the northern city of Chernihiv. The attacks happen at the same time that Russia lost in Kherson and while world leaders are meeting in Bali for the G20. There, there was a lot of anger at Moscow for the war in Ukraine.

According to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky,

It's clear what the enemy wants. They will not get it.

Tuesday, air raid sirens went off all over the country, and the deputy head of Mr. Zelensky's office, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, said that Russia fired more than 90 missiles.

"Our air defences shot down 70," he said in a post on the Telegram messaging app.

There were also reports that millions of homes in several cities and the nearby country of Moldova lost power.

Mr. Tymoshenko said that the situation was very bad and that Russia had done "another planned attack on energy infrastructure facilities." He said that 15 sites had been damaged.

In a video shared by the office of President Zelensky, what looks like a block of flats is on fire, with flames coming out of the windows.

Svitlana Romanchuk, who lives in Kyiv, told the BBC that she was in bed when the raid began.

We crawled out into the corridor, there was already a burning smell. We grabbed our clothes, opened the doors and ran downstairs.

Andriy Yermak, a presidential adviser, said that the strikes were Russia's response to President Zelensky's "powerful speech" at the G20.

During the virtual speech, Mr. Zelensky spoke to what he called the "G19" leaders, leaving Russia out on purpose. He said that he was "convinced now is the time when the Russian destructive war must and can be stopped".

Moscow has pulled its troops out of Kherson, a city in the south, over the past week. Kherson was the only regional capital that Moscow had taken since it invaded Ukraine in February.

This is the first time Russia has attacked since the withdrawal was finished. During this war, when Moscow has lost troops on the ground, it has often fought back from the air.

Conclusion

The UK and the US were two of Ukraine's western allies that spoke out against the latest attacks. British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly said that Russia's "callous targeting of Ukrainian cities" shows only Putin's weakness.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that such attacks "would not break Ukraine's will."
