Russia killed 12 civilians in another wave of missile strikes across Ukraine on January 26, one day after Germany and the United States announced they would send main battle tanks to Ukraine.
- Russia shot 55 missiles across 11 regions of Ukraine.
- Ukraine’s air force shot down 47 of the missiles; however, 35 buildings were damaged, 11 people were killed, and 11 more were wounded.

- One blast can be heard and seen shaking the city of Kyiv in a video from a Sky News interview with a member of Ukraine’s Parliament.
- Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal explained in a Telegram post that Russia’s main target “is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat.”
- A majority of Russia’s missile strikes also hit residential areas.
The Trumpet said: “[Russian President Vladimir Putin] is a cruel, calloused tyrant with an intense determination to emasculate the West—especially America—to expand Russian power, and to establish Russia as the world’s leading nation,” theTrumpet.com managing editor Brad Macdonald wrote in “Fear This Man.” Most every time Ukraine tries to make an advance in the war, Putin’s forces come back with a quick, violent response and little regard to human life. Even as America and other Western powers pledge their support, the possibility of being killed by a Russian missile remains the reality of life in Ukraine. Mr. Macdonald continued, “This man is a killer. He needs to be feared and respected. He is changing the course of history.”
