Four people have died, and 92 others have been injured due to the morning massive attack by the Russian Federation on Ukraine on January 2, according to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's Telegram channel.

"Over 500 rescuers from the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, communal services, energy workers, and police. Kyiv and the region, Kharkiv. At this time, we know about 92 injured. Everyone is provided with assistance. Unfortunately, four people have died. My condolences to their families and loved ones," he said.

Zelenskyy noted that since December 31, Russian aggressors have employed about 170 Shahed (UAVs) and dozens of missiles of various types.

"For the third day, our air defense forces are doing incredible work. The absolute majority of them were aimed at civilian objects. I thank all the partners who helped strengthen our air shield. And obviously, this helps save hundreds of lives every day and night that would be taken by Russian terror if not for the Patriot and other defense systems," the president added.

He stated that this year, Ukraine will continue working with everyone who values life to strengthen our air shield further and hold Russia accountable for its actions.
"A terrorist state must feel the consequences of what it is doing," Zelenskyy added.
