Russia launched 85 missiles on the territory of Ukraine on Nov. 15, most of which were aimed at critical infrastructure facilities, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in a video address.
“A total of 85 missiles were launched at Ukraine, at our cities, most of them at critical infrastructure,” he said.
“It’s clear what the enemy wants, but he won’t achieve what he wants.”
As he spoke, Zelenskyy noted that 20 missiles were still in the air, so he called on Ukrainians to stay in shelters.
Russia launched another missile attack on Ukraine on Nov. 15. It is thought that it fired Kh-101 and Kh-555 cruise missiles.
Air defense systems are operating in several Ukrainian regions.
At least one person was killed after Russia launched three missiles at residential buildings in the Pechersk District of the Ukrainian capital city of Kyiv.
Explosions were also heard in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv, and parts of the country were reported to be without power.
