Officials report Russia has launched missiles from the Black Sea, Caspian Sea and also Tu-95 Bombers are reportedly in the air.

Russian missile strikes against Ukraine hit Kiev, taking out the Command and Operational Headquarters of the VSU.
Kiev’s electric grid is having convulsions as well.
In Kahrkov, all electricity is out after Russian missiles hit that city.
UPDATE 12:28 PM EST —
Kiev, Kharkov, Lvov and Zhytomyr are de-energized.
Russia picked a nifty time to strike. Ukraine/Russia is affected by a strong snow storm. About two inches of snow already and coming down harsh here. People are going to freeze and starve without power. While they’re shivering, maybe they should ask themselves if they actually _want_ their NAZI government? That’s what is causing all this.
UPDATE 12:46 PM EST —

UPDATE 1:05 PM EST —
UNCONFIRMED — UNCONFIRMED — REPORTS THAT RUSSIA USED A TYPE OF “BINKER-BUSTER” AGAINST UKRAINE GENERAL STAFF MILITARY HEADQUARTERS IN KIEV AND THAT “ALL OF THEM ARE DEAD.” Again this is NOT CONFIRMED, but reports are coming out saying ALL of the Ukrainian Army General Staff are now dead.
There are reports of the passage of another batch of cruise missiles over the Cherkasy region towards Kyiv.
Today was the most massive strike on the energy sector since the beginning of the conflict, – Minister of Energy of Ukraine Galushchenko
“This attack can affect not only the energy system of Ukraine, but also the energy systems of some of our neighbors. Hits occur both on generation facilities and on the power transmission system,” he added.
(Hal Turner Remark: Yesterday Zelensky declared a major victory for Ukraine that would end the war… not 24 hours later the whole country is without power, water, food and the military is in full collapse.)
Huge traffic jams seen in parts of Kiev after crippling Russian strikes on Ukrainian energy infrastructure.

UPDATE 3:48 PM EST —
A photo has been made available to me showing a missile FRAGMENT. No word yet on whether this is a Russian Missile, or aa Ukrainian air defense missile. No one is saying either way right now.
According to a missile expert with whom the Hal Turner Radio Show spoke just minutes ago, “A certain resemblance to a part of a motor section of 5V55-series missiles used with S-300 SAM systems.”
In that case, this may be the remains of a Ukrainian AD missile, or perhaps that plus the cruise missile it intercepted. However this is NOT AN ID AT THIS TIME.
The Russians are denying they are responsible for the strike in Poland

The statement concluded: “The fragments published in hot pursuit by the Polish media from the scene in the village of Przewoduv have nothing to do with Russian weapons”.

UPDATE 5:28 PM EST —
ANALYSIS OF POLAND MISSILE FRAGMENT PHOTOS
The photo of the missile fragment found at an impact site in Poland, when compared to other known missile fragments found in very many places in Ukraine, seems to show conclusively the origin of the missiles:
The photo at bottom is the missile fragment found at the Poland impact site.
Above left and right are other missile fragments found in Ukraine at other impact sites throughout the country.
The top left and right photos show fragments that lead to a clear conclusion that the fragment in Poland belongs to the 48D6 motor of the 5V55-series missile of the S-300 AD system- a Ukrainian one.
The missile impacts in Poland came from Ukrainian air-defense missiles; NOT Russian.
