Massive Airstrike on Ukraine 16-17 November

Several dead in Kyiv. 566 miners underground. The biggest attack on Ukrainian energy infrastructure 

On 15 November, Russia launched 1 of the largest strikes against Ukraine. It was a large-scale shelling of the country's infrastructure and a terrorist act against the peaceful inhabitants of Kyiv. Russian missiles hit 3 residential complexes in the capital. At the moment, 1 wounded and 1 dead are known.

In Kryvyi Rih, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, missile strikes on electric power sources. As a result of shelling, four mines ceased to work. There were 566 workers left underground. The evacuation was carried out from countercharge and winches. As of October 16, all miners were rescued.

The British ambassador to Ukraine immediately responded to the events on Tuesday. It linked missile strikes not only because Ukraine is not a member of the G20 at the summit but also the failure of the Russian army in Kherson.

"As the night changes in the day, so Russia continues a humiliating exit from Kherson by missile strikes on the energy infrastructure in Kyiv and other places. The UK lists with Ukrainians," Melinda Simmons wrote on Twitter.

In total, Russia launched more than 90 missiles, 10 Iranian unmanned aerial vehicles, Shahed, and 1 Orion uncrewed aerial vehicle. Ukraine's anti-aircraft defences shot down all unmanned aerial vehicles and 73 enemy missiles.
