Russia's Defense Ministry says massive missile attack on peaceful Ukrainian cities and critical infrastructure is "retaliation for Briansk region"

This was reported by the Russian Ministry of Defense.

Russia recognizes another missile terror in Ukraine.

"A massive retaliatory strike was carried out with high-precision weapons, including Kinzhal hypersonic missiles, against Ukrainian targets in response to the terrorist attacks in the Briansk region," the statement said.

The Russian Defense Ministry emphasizes that the goal of the "retaliatory strike" has been achieved.

"All defined objects of Ukrainian military infrastructure have been hit, the transfer of reserves for the Armed Forces and rail transportation of foreign weapons have been disrupted," the Russian propagandists add.

The Russians kept silent about the fact that Ukrainian energy and civilian infrastructure were again affected by today's strikes.

On the night and morning of March 9, Russian troops massively attacked Ukraine. There were hits to critical infrastructure, as well as deaths and injuries. According to Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko, shelling of energy facilities was recorded in Kyiv, Mykolaiv, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia, Odesa, Dnipro and Zhytomyr regions.
