Explosions were heard in Dnipro, Kryvyi Rih and Kropyvnytskyi, Suspilne and local authorities reported on Dec. 24.

Russia attacked Kropyvnytskyi with ballistic missiles from Russian-occupied Crimea, Air Force spokesperson Yurii Ihnat said on national television.

"The missiles didn’t reach their targets," Ihnat said.

A Russian missile was shot down near Dnipro, according to Dnipropetrovsk Oblast Governor Serhii Lysak.

Ukraine's Air Force said on Telegram that the threat of a missile attack prompted the air raid siren in Dnipropetrovsk, Mykolaiv, Kherson, Kirovohrad, and Zaporizhzhia oblasts, and urged residents of Kropyvnytskyi to take shelter.
