Russia launched about 60 missile strikes at Ukraine over the weekend in the latest skirmish since their invasion about four months ago. At least one of the missiles struck an apartment building in Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, causing several casualties, officials said.
The Russian missile barrage could have been a reaction to the Group of Seven summit in Germany or the recent arrival of another shipment of M-142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) to aid the Ukrainians, a senior Pentagon official told reporters on Monday.
“We’re not quite sure of the Russian objectives for the strike,” the senior Defense Department official said. “It’s not unusual to hear about civilian casualties associated with Russian strikes.”
At least one of the missiles that landed in a residential area was likely intended for a military target nearby.
“Those apartments were adjacent to or near a factory that we know was constructing munitions for the Ukrainians,” the senior defense official said.
