All Russia can do is terrorize civilians, Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelenskyy said in comments on Facebook on March 9, hours after a massive Russian missile strikeleft at least six Ukrainians dead and hundreds of thousands without power andheating.

"It's been a difficult night," the president said.

“A massive (missile) attack across the country. Kyiv, Kirovohrad, Dnipro, Odesa, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhya, Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Zhytomyr, Vinnytsia (oblasts). Attacks on critical infrastructure and residential buildings.”

Russia returned again to its miserable tactics of attempting to intimidate Ukrainians, firing a total of 81 missiles, Zelenskyy said.

"Unfortunately, there are injured and dead. My condolences to the families," the message reads.

“All services are working. The energy system is being restored. Restrictions were imposed in all regions.”

All Russian can do is terrorize civilians, he continued.

"That's all they can do. But it won’t help them,”, he said.

“They won’t evade responsibility for everything they have done. We thank the guardians of our skies and everyone who helps to overcome the consequences of the occupiers' sneak attacks!”

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba also commented on the latest attack, saying there was no military objective behind them and it is simply “Russian barbarism.”

"Russia launched a massive missile and drone attack on Ukraine overnight, leading to loss of lives and damage to civilian infrastructure," Kuleba said on Twitter.

"The day will come when Putin and his associates are held accountable by a Special Tribunal."

In the early hours of March 9, Russia conducted another massive attack against Ukraine, using various types of missiles and Shahed drones. Explosions were heard in many cities and regions, including Kyiv.

Five people were killed in Zolochiv, Lviv Oblast, when two residential buildings were destroyed during the attack.
