Missiles Rain Down on Ukraine As Putin Gives Combative New Year’s Speech

From a Washington Post story by David L. Stern and Francesca Ebel headlined “Missiles rain down on Ukraine as Putin gives combative New Year’s speech”:

As Moscow launched a fresh barrage of strikes against Ukraine on Saturday, Russian President Vladimir Putin gave an unusually aggressive prerecorded address, which was broadcast as Russians in the Far East began their New Year’s celebrations.

This New Year’s message was notably different from previous years, a reflection of the new path the country has taken since Russia invaded Ukraine this February.
