Safety rules: what to take with you to a shelter during a missile threat

On Monday, October 10, Russia launched a powerful missile attack on Ukraine. Explosions were heard in Kyiv, Lviv, Khmelnytskyi, Dnipro, and other cities. In total, the enemy fired more than 80 missiles, 43 of which were shot down by Ukrainian air defense.

The missiles hit residential and critical infrastructure of our cities.
