Russia Attacks Kyiv After Weeks of Sluggish Performance

Russia Attacks Kyiv After Weeks of Sluggish Performance

New Attacks Reenergize Russian Aggression

( – In April, Russia withdrew all of its troops from Kyiv. Many saw the move as a major victory for Ukraine. More than a month later, the Russian military has once again attacked the capital city.

On June 5, Russia launched missiles into the capital city. Ukraine revealed the military strike hit a rail car repair shop. Yet, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime claimed the missiles destroyed tanks and other equipment sent to the nation from other countries.

The strikes on Kyiv come as the United States and other nations have begun sending more advanced missile systems to Ukraine. Putin has objected to the West supplying long-range rocket systems to the eastern European country because the missiles could hit his country. The Russian president promised to hit targets that the military hasn’t struck yet.

Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak posted a scathing statement on Twitter saying the attacks on Kyiv were “insidious.” He went on to say the “terrorist attacks” deserve a “tough response” from Western allies, including more weapons and sanctions.

The attack on Kyiv came as Ukraine took back control of an area of Sievierodonetsk, where the Russian military has sent many of its troops in recent weeks. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy told his troops they deserved a victory.
