Russia initiated a series of missile strikes on multiple Ukrainian cities, including Kyiv, Kharkiv, and Pavlohrad, on the early morning of January 23. These attacks led to significant damage to residential areas, resulting in at least one fatality and injuring a minimum of eight people, as reported by officials.

Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko, via his Telegram channel, disclosed that seven individuals were injured in the capital city, with six requiring hospitalization.

Among the injured was a 13-year-old boy who received immediate treatment on-site. Most injuries occurred in Kyiv's Solomianskyi district, where a multi-story building's entrance was demolished by the attack.

This is reported by Kyiv Independent.

In Kyiv's Sviatoshynskyi district, a missile strike caused parked cars to catch fire on a residential street. Klitschko later reported that a non-residential two-story building in the district was ablaze.

An unexploded warhead was discovered in an apartment building in the same district, leading to the evacuation of its residents.

Additionally, missiles struck a non-residential structure in Kyiv's Pecherskyi district. These neighborhoods experienced partial disruptions in electricity and water supply, with crews actively working to restore services.

The Dnipropetrovsk Oblast's city of Pavlohrad also suffered a massive missile strike, as confirmed by Governor Serhii Lysak. This attack resulted in at least one death and one injury.

In Kharkiv, the regional governor Oleh Syniehubov reported early morning damage to civilian infrastructure. Notably, a high-rise residential building in Kharkiv's Kyivskyi district was hit, destroying entrances and leaving people trapped under the rubble.

Rescue and emergency services are currently active at the site, as stated by Syniehubov. The missile attacks represent a significant escalation in the ongoing conflict, affecting numerous civilian lives and properties.
