Zelensky: Four Ukrainians killed in Russian missile strikes today

Four people were killed in Russian missile strikes on Ukraine on December 5.

President Volodymyr Zelensky said this in his video address, Ukrinform reports.

In particular, Russia launched 70 missiles, most of which were shot down.

“I am grateful to all our warriors of the air commands "East", "South" and "Center". Well done! I am also grateful to our partners for the air defense systems we are currently using. Every downed Russian missile is concrete proof that terror can be defeated. But, unfortunately, we still cannot ensure complete security to our sky - there were several hits. Unfortunately, there are victims. As of this time, there are four people killed by Russian strikes today. My condolences to families and friends,” the President said.

He added that power engineers immediately started restoration works. “Maximum efforts are in the central regions of Ukraine, Odesa, Zaporizhzhia and Kharkiv regions,” Zelensky said.

As reported, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal stated that Russian missiles hit energy facilities in Kyiv, Vinnytsia and Odesa regions on December 5. Despite this, the country's power grid is functioning. In some regions, emergency shutdowns are in place in order to balance the system and avoid accidents.
