Russia’s war on Ukraine latest: Russian missiles strike Ukrainian cities

March 9 (Reuters) – Russia launched a huge wave of rocket attacks in Ukraine on Thursday while people slept, killing at least six civilians and forcing a nuclear power plant off the grid. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy condemned the strikes and said Moscow “will not shirk its responsibility”.


* Ukraine’s military said its forces managed to repel intense Russian attacks on the eastern mining town of Bakhmut, despite a Russian claim for control of the eastern half.

* Zelenskyi said the battle for Bakhmut and the surrounding Donbass region is “our first priority”.

Reuters could not independently verify battlefield reports.


* Russian-installed officials in the Moscow-controlled part of Ukraine’s Zaporizhia region said cutting off power to the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant from Ukrainian-held territory was “a provocation”.

* Western allies warned against jumping to conclusions about who was responsible for blowing up the Nord Stream pipelines, with Germany suggesting the attack could also have been a “false flag” operation to blame Ukraine.
