  • At least 17 people have been killed in Russian missile strikes on Ukrainian cities, according to Ukrainian officials. The deadliest attack occurred in a residential building, where at least 14 people, including two children, lost their lives. The city of Oman, where the attack took place, is situated hundreds of kilometers away from the front lines, as close to Kiev as it is to the border of Moldova. The missile struck the building in the early hours of the morning, causing a large explosion and leaving a gaping hole in the structure. Rescue crews and firefighters immediately rushed to the scene, and efforts are ongoing to search for survivors amidst the rubble. Ukrainian officials estimate that 27 apartments were completely destroyed, with over 100 people living in the vicinity. The death toll is expected to rise as the search and rescue operation continues. Apart from Oman, other Ukrainian cities, including Dnipro and the Kiev region, were also targeted by Russian missiles. This attack marks the first large-scale assault on Ukraine in nearly two months. Previously, such attacks were more frequent, but had recently decreased due to Russia's depletion of its stockpile of long-range missiles, according to Western officials.
  • Subtitles section
  • There is breaking news from Russia's war on Ukraine today.
  • Ukrainian officials say a wave of Russian missile strikes on Ukrainian cities have killed at least 17 people.
  • This Is the aftermath of what appears to be the deadliest attack.
  • Officials say at least 14 people were killed when that apartment block was hit.
  • Two children are reported to be among the dead.
  • As Briar Stewart reports, the city is hundreds of kilometres from the front lines.
  • City of Oman is actually as close to Kiev as it is to the border of Moldova, just to give viewers a sense of where it is and how far back it is from the front line.
  • And what we know is that a missile struck a residential building in the early hours of the morning.
  • Images from the scene, you can see there's a large gaping hole in the building.
  • There was an immediate explosion.
  • Rescue crews of course rushed in along with firefighters.
  • And now crews are continuing to pick through the rubble.
  • Ukrainian officials say there were 27 apartments that were completely destroyed.
  • And they believe that there were just over 100 people living in that area of the building.
  • So it is very likely that we will continue to see the death toll rise.
  • And while that city was hit the hardest, a number of missiles were fired across Ukraine.
  • Ukrainian officials say that a mother and a child was killed in the southern city of Dnipro.
  • And of course missiles were also hurled into the Kiev region.
  • And this is really the first attack we have seen of this size on Ukraine in nearly two months.
  • And that's significant because in the fall we would see these kinds of attacks almost weekly.
  • And then it really slowed down.
  • And what Western officials say that's because Russia was really running out of its stockpile of long-range missiles.
  • But of course since the late fall and into the winter both Ukraine and Russia has really been trying to prepare for what's next because of course there is so much talk over a looming counter-offensive.
  • Briar, these Russian attacks, the timing of all of this, just as Ukraine's military prepares for a counter-offensive, it's been anticipated for weeks.
  • And I'm wondering if there are any fresh indications on the timing of when this could start.
  • Well, in fact, Heather, Ukraine's Defence Minister Alexei Reznikov commented on that just today saying that Ukraine is ready and God willing when there's good weather and a decision from commanders it will begin.
  • Of course weather is a big factor in all of this because they need to make sure that the ground isn't too soft, it isn't too muddy so that the combat vehicles can move.
  • And over the last couple of months Ukraine has been training tens of thousands of troops.
  • All of the hundreds of pieces of equipment that have been shipped in from Western partners, they're almost all on the ground now.
  • So Ukraine is ready and this is a pivotal time because while Ukraine has been preparing for this counter-offensive, so has Russia.
  • Russia has been preparing its defences including building hundreds of kilometres of trenches throughout the south and in the east.
  • That's Briar Stewart in London.
