Ukraine War: Putin Launched Missile Attacks On Ukraine Threatening ‘Harsh Response’.
- Volodymyr Zelenskiy, said Russia had fired dozens of missiles as well as Iranian-made kamikaze drones, adding that Russia’s main targets appeared to be energy infrastructure and civilians.
President Vladimir Putin has threatened a “harsh response” if attacks continue against Russia, hours after his troops launched a massive wave of strikes targeting cities across Ukraine in response to an attack on the Kerch bridge linking Russia and Crimea.
In televised remarks, The Guardian reports Putin once again blamed Ukraine for the Kerch bridge attack, describing it as a “terrorist attack aimed at the destruction of civil critical important infrastructure of Russia”.
Russia had launched long-range missile attacks against Ukraine’s energy, military, and communications infrastructure today in retaliation for the bridge attack, he said.
Speaking at a security council meeting this morning, Putin said:
“If acts of terrorism continue against Russia, we will respond in a very harsh manner. The responses will be of the same scale as the threats to Russia. Nobody should have any doubts about this.”
