Russia again pummeled Ukraine with a barrage of cruise and other missiles on Thursday, hitting targets from east to west. Ukrainian authorities said one of the strikes killed a 79-year-old woman and injured at least seven other people.

Russian forces used a variety of missile types, firing 36 in all in a two-hour overnight burst, said Ukraine's military chief, Valery Zaluzhnyy. He said Ukrainian air defense batteries shot down 16 of them -- a lower rate of success than against some previous Russian waves.

The head of Ukraine's presidential office, Andriy Yermak, said Russian forces "changed their tactics" for the strike, deploying what he described as "active reconnaissance" and "false targets." One of the overnight strikes caused casualties and destroyed homes in the eastern city of Pavlohrad, the regional governor said. Gov. Serhiy Lysak said a 79-year-old woman was killed and at least seven other people were wounded, including two who were later hospitalized.

Ukraine’s battle against Russia for Bakhmut ‘very difficult,’ Zelensky saysAs EU leaders meet in Brussels, Zelensky urges ‘speed in everything - adopting decisions, carrying out decisions, shipping supplies, training’ Well according to Canadian media the should be in Moscow by now what happened? Paid mercenaries more willing to fight than conscripts forced to fight for a corrupted Nazi government? Funny, that isn't what this guy just said 👇 winning 'very difficult' to Zelenskyy means tens of thousands of dead Ukrainians losing to Russia. He was elected on a platform of peace with Russia but instead oversaw killing thousands of Russian speaking Ukrainians in Eastern Ukraine. This war started in 2014, not last year.
