Ukraine reels from massive Russian missile attack | Financial Times

Russia has carried out one of its largest strikes on Ukraine including with nuclear-capable hypersonic missiles that hit cities and knocked off back-up power at Europe’s largest atomic plant.

Of the more than 80 rockets fired, six were nuclear-capable hypersonic Kh-47 Kinzhal air-to-surface missiles, according to Ukrainian officials. The assault has left much of Kyiv without electricity. Russia has never before fired so many Kinzhals in one attack, said Yuriy Ignat, spokesperson for Ukraine’s air force, who added that Russia only had dozens of these missiles. The barrage included other types of missiles Ukraine was unable to intercept, such as X-22 supersonic missiles.
