Ukraine urgently need assistance from the United States as Russia continues shelling the sovereign nation, according to the US Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink.

"Again this morning Russia is attacking Ukraine with hypersonic missiles. Loud explosions in Kyiv," she wrote.

The ambassador said that over the past five days, Russia has launched hundreds of missiles and drones against the sovereign country.

"Ukraine needs our assistance now. There is not a moment to lose," Brink added.

Shelling of Ukraine

Starting from March 21, Russia resumed massive missile shelling of Ukraine. Initially, Kyiv was attacked, where all 30 missiles were intercepted.

However, on March 22, Russia launched a combined missile and aviation strike using 151 assets. Air defense systems destroyed 92 enemy targets, including 55 Shahed drones, 35 cruise missiles Kh-101/Kh-555, and 2 guided aviation missiles Kh-59.

The enemy targeted the energy sector. In particular, the occupiers targeted the Dnipro Hydroelectric Power Plant, and there was a threat of a complete power outage at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant. A dire situation arose in Kharkiv—the city experienced power outages and had problems with the internet and water supply.

According to the head of Ukrenergo Volodymyr Kudrytskyi, the attack on Ukraine's energy infrastructure was the largest since the beginning of the full-scale war.

Moreover, on the morning of March 25, two ballistic missiles struck Kyiv. Both were intercepted. It is known that a multi-story building was damaged in the Pechersk district of the capital. Additionally, debris was recorded falling in the Solomianskyi and Dniprovskyi districts.
