Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak says more than 120 missiles had been fired at Ukraine.
The Russian missile strike blasts were heard in several cities which the authorities said came from air defence systems shooting down incoming missiles.
29.12.22. 120+ missiles over 🇺🇦 launched by the "evil Russian world" to destroy critical infrastructure & kill civilians en masse. We’re waiting for further proposals from "peacekeepers" about "peaceful settlement", "security guarantees for RF" & undesirability of provocations.

Presidential office adviser Oleksiy Arestovych also wrote on Facebook that more than 100 missiles were incoming in several waves and air raid alarms could be heard across the country.
Blasts were heard in Kyiv, Zhytomyr and Odesa, according to a Reuters correspondent and local media reports. Power cuts were announced in the Odesa and Dnipropetrovsk regions, aimed at minimising potential damage to the energy infrastructure.
