Ukrainian air defense was active in Zaporizhzhia, Kirovohrad, Khmelnytskyi and Ivano-Frankivsk oblasts, as well as in Lviv, according to local governors.

Seven people were injured in Kharkiv by the strikes, including two people in serious condition, Kharkiv Oblast governor Oleh Syniehubov reported.

Seven more missiles have been fired at Kryvyi Rih, in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, according to Oleksandr Vilkul, head of the city’s military administration, who urged residents not to upload any photos or videos pertaining to the strike.

Russian forces targeted energy infrastructure in Zaporizhzhia early on Feb. 10, hitting the city 17 times in an hour, Zaporizhzhia City Council Secretary Anatolii Kurtiev reported.

Debris from the Russian missile damaged a car and the roof of a private house in Kyiv’s Holosiivskyi district on the morning of Feb. 10, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko reported on Telegram.

The mayor urged citizens to remain in shelters, saying the missile attack continues.
