Kiev: Air raid warnings were issued in several regions of Ukraine late on Sunday night, according to air raid data from the country’s Ministry of Digital Transformation.
Air raid sirens sounded in Ukraine’s regions of Sumy, Mykolaiv, Kirovohrad, Dnipropetrovsk, Cherkasy, Kharkiv, Odesa and Poltava, as well as Kiev-controlled parts of Kherson region, the ministry’s online map showed.
Shortly after midnight, air raid sirens sounded in the Kiev region of Ukraine, as well as the capital city itself. Air raid warnings were also issued in the regions of Chernihiv and Vinnytsia overnight, as well as Ukraine-controlled parts of Zaporizhzhia region.

Precision strikes against Ukrainian infrastructure have been carried out by Russia since October 10 (two days after the terrorist attack on the Crimean Bridge).
In February, the head of Ukrainian power grid operator Ukrenergo said that direct damage to Ukraine’s energy infrastructure caused by Russian strikes may amount to hundreds of millions of dollars, with economic losses ranging in billions.
