Ukrainian cities hit in missile strikes

At least 12 Ukrainian cities have been hit in missile strikes two days after a strategically important bridge linking Russia with Crimea was damaged in a blast.

Kyiv has been targeted for the first time in months, but explosions have also been reported Ternopil and Lviv in the west, which has so far escaped the worst of the war.

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky says Russia has targeted energy infrastructure across the country and that energy facilities in Kyiv, Lviv, Dnipro, Vinnytsia, Zaporizhzhia and Kharkiv are among the places hit.

Ukraine's military commander says Russia launched 83 missiles in total.

It comes a day after Russian President Vladimir Putin accused Ukraine's security services of attacking the Kerch bridge - although Ukrainian officials have not indicated whether their forces were behind the attack.

The 19km (12-mile) bridge, the longest in Europe, is an important supply route for Russian forces fighting in Ukraine.

Russia has used the bridge to move military equipment, ammunition, and personnel from Russia to battlefields in southern Ukraine.
