Following the attack on the Kyiv Oblast village, Russia launched a missile attack on crucial infrastructure of the capital of Ukraine in the morning on Jan. 14.

A few hours earlier other blasts were also heard in Kyiv, but the Ukrainian military said this was not due to any military actions. The head of Kyiv regional military administration, Oleksii Kuleba, reported that a fire at an infrastructure facility had caused the explosions.
