At least four people were killed and 10 injured on Thursday in a Russian bombardment of the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson, from which Moscow troops withdrew two weeks ago, the governor said. “The Russian invaders opened fire on a residential area using multiple rocket launchers. A large building caught fire,” Yarovslav Yanushevich, head of the Kherson military administration, said on Telegram.

Also, other bombings left six dead and 30 injured in Vyshgorod, near kyiv.

Ukraine, including its capital kyiv, was largely deprived of electricity and water on Thursday, the day after new massive Russian strikes that specifically targeted energy infrastructure, a strategy described as “war crimes” by Western allies in when winter sets in. Nine months to the day after the start of the Russian invasion, millions of Ukrainians have spent the day without power and in the cold.

In kyiv, hit by freezing rain falling on snow and near freezing temperatures, around 70% of the population remained without electricity, while the water supply was restored, according to the town hall.

For its part, the Russian Ministry of Defense asserted that the Russian bombardments had not targeted the capital, accusing the Ukrainian anti-aircraft defense of having been responsible for the damage in kyiv. In Kharkiv, the country’s second city, not far from the border with Russia, the supply has been restored after “very difficult” work, said its mayor Igor Terekhov.
