Russian rockets have hit an oil base in central Ukraine causing what witnesses have described as “significant damage”.
On Tuesday morning, Russian occupying forces launched rocket attacks on the city of Kryvyi Rih in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast.
While the details of the shelling remain unclear, residents have been urged to stay in their shelters.
Videos of the aftermath showed flames and thick black smoke spewing out of the blast zone.
Meanwhile, Volodymyr Zelensky, the Ukrainian President, said a new cut-off of power connecting the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power station to the national grid had placed the plant “a step away from a radiation catastrophe” again. Mr Zelensky said Russian shelling was responsible.
Power at the Ukrainian plant was all but cut off on Monday for the second time in two weeks as Kyiv accused Moscow of pushing the war to the brink of nuclear catastrophe, one day before the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog was due to issue an assessment of the station.
