A wave of explosions across Ukraine have seen a number of cultural sites in the capital city of Kyiv hit.

Since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine starting in February this year, the country has been bombarded, with military and non-military targets hit by the Vladimir Putin-led assault.

On October 8, Ukrainian people were seen celebrating on social media following the destruction of the bridge linking Russia and the illegally annexed Crimean Peninsula. Since then, Russian missiles have bombarded cities across the country, with an offensive against Ukraine not seen in intensity since the start of the war.

Following the latest rounds of bombings, Ukraine’s Ministry of Culture said that two national museums in the capital Kyiv, as well as the Philharmonic building, had been hit during the strikes.

A video circulating online also shows Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko's glass bridge - a popular tourist spot and viewpoint above the Dnipro River - hit as someone crossing narrowly avoids the blast.

Another missile hit Kyiv’s Golden Gate district next to the National Academy of Sciences building during the morning rush hour. Images from the scene showed burning cars and a demolished statue of 20th-century Ukrainian scientist Myhailo Hrushevsky.

The Museum of Natural History, the National Opera, and St. Volodymyr’s Cathedral were all within a block of another major missile hit.

“We are dealing with terrorists,” said President Vladimir Zelensky following the strikes. “They are trying to cause panic and chaos, they want to destroy our power grid. They are hopeless.”
