Russia has launched massive missile strikes across Ukraine, including the capital Kyiv, causing power cuts and water shortages, Ukrainian officials say

Ukraine says it was targeted by "more than 50" cruise missiles, resulting in power cuts across several regions.

At least two blasts were reported in Kyiv. One resident told the BBC his district was now without electricity

In the north-eastern city of Kharkiv, critical infrastructure facilities were hit, local authorities said

Missile strikes were also reported in the central Vinnytsia region, as well as Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhzhia in the south-east, and Lviv in western Ukraine

 A facility at the Dnipro hydroelectric power plant in the Zaporizhzhia region was also reportedly hit

Andriy Yerkmak, the head of President Volodymyr Zelensky's office, said that "Russian losers are continuing to fight against peaceful objects"

In Kyiv, many residents have been hiding inside the city's metro stations. Russia has so far made no public comments on the reported latest strikes
