Russian forces continue to shell Ukraine. In a statement, President Zelenskyy said, "we will hold President Putin and those responsible to account."

Russia launched multiple missile attacks into the Ukrainian city of Zaporizhzhia overnight, killing at least 13 people and wounding more than 60 in an apparent reprisal for a truck bomb that damaged a Crimean bridge. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday blamed Ukraine's special services for the bridge explosion, and he ordered the chairman of his investigative committee, Alexander Bastrykin, to open a criminal case. Bastrykin said some suspects have already been identified.

"There is no doubt this is a terrorist attack aimed at destroying Russia's critically important civilian infrastructure," Putin said in reference to the only road link between Russia and Crimea. Ukraine officials have hinted at involvement in the blast but have not claimed responsibility.

The missile strikes caused parts of one high-rise apartment building to collapse and blew windows out of adjacent buildings. The attacks came hours after an explosion that caused the partial collapse of the Kerch Bridge, an important supply artery for the Kremlin’s war effort.
