Russia Expands Attacks on Civilian Targets in Ukraine After Battlefield Losses

Russia is intensifying a campaign of long-range missile strikes targeting Ukraine’s key infrastructure after facing major setbacks on the battlefield that have raised concerns about further escalation from Moscow.

The U.K.’s Ministry of Defense said Sunday that Russian strikes had increasingly picked out civilian targets over the past week, even when no immediate military benefit could be perceived. The aim, it said, is to “undermine the morale of the Ukrainian people and government,” which has been buoyed by the success of a recent offensive in the northeast of the country.
