NY POST: Ukraine shoots down 54 out of 69 recently launched Russian missiles:
Russia unleashed one of its largest aerial bombardments into Ukrainian cities Thursday, with targets including energy infrastructures in the embattled capital Kyiv as well as Lviv, Odesa, and elsewhere. 
The Ukrainian military confirmed that it shot down 54 out of the 69 missiles launched by Russia since the assault began at 7 a.m. local time, CNBC reported. The statement contradicted earlier claims that 120 missiles were fired into Ukraine during that time.
Air raid sirens sounded in Kyiv for five hours, marking one of the longest assaults of the 11-month war. Reuters footage of the hours following the attack shows emergency workers searching the wreckage of destroyed houses while smoke trails linger in the sky.
The city’s mayor, Vitali Klitschko, said three people were injured in the attacks, including a 14-year-old girl. He advised residents to stockpile water and charge their devices in anticipation of power outages. 
Meanwhile, the mayor of Lviv, Andriy Sadovyi, reported that 90% of his city was without electricity.
Missile fragments clipped a residential building in Odesa, but governor Maksym Marchenko said there were no casualties. Firefighters in Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, hustled to extinguish a blaze at an electricity station, while the southern area of Zaporizhzhia was left with a gaping crater.
“I woke up to everything shaking, crumbling. I got up and screamed, ‘Vitia, Vitia [my husband], where are you?’ I ran barefoot on glass. He appeared and glass was falling off him,” terrified resident Halyna, 60, remembered. --->READ MORE HERE

20 attacks being repelled near Bakhmut daily, reports General Staff:
Ukrainian troops repel about 20 Russian attacks in and around Bakhmut in Donetsk Oblast every day, Deputy Chief of the Main Operational Department at the General Staff, Oleksiy Hromov, reported at a briefing on Dec. 29.
"In the Bakhmut area, the Ukrainian army deters about 20 offensive enemy assaults, with artillery support, daily,” Hromov said.
“They’re stubborn about it.”
In order to provide artillery support in the area, invading Russian forces have reduced the number of artillery attacks on Ukrainian positions in Kherson and Zaporizhzhya oblasts.
Bakhmut remains one of the hottest spots on the front line. Russia has been attempting to take the town, without success, for months, but have incurred enormous losses in manpower and materiel. --->READ MORE HERE
