Ukraine says it has shot down at least 41 Russian missiles
KYIV — Ukraine’s top general said Ukrainian forces shot down at least 41 missiles that were fired at Ukraine by Russia on Monday morning.
“This morning, 75 missiles were launched. 41 of them were neutralized by our air defense,” General Valeriy Zaluzhnyi, Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile, President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said Russia timed its strikes on Ukraine on Monday to inflict the greatest possible losses among people and had also targeted the country’s energy infrastructure.
“They want panic and chaos, they want to destroy our energy system,” Zelenskiy said in a video post that showed him outside his presidential office.
“The second target is people. Such a time and such targets were specially chosen to cause as much damage as possible.”
