RIGA - Russia carried out its missile attacks on the city center of Kyiv at a time when most people would be on the streets, according to Janis Sarts, director of NATO's Strategic Communication Excellence Center, on social networks.

Russia's attack on Kyiv is the Kremlin's response to the bombing of the Kerch bridge, Sarts said.

He emphasizes that the explosion on the bridge happened at night, when there were very few cars on the bridge.

On the other hand, Russia bombed the city center of Kyiv yesterday when there was a large number of people on the streets, thus trying to cause maximum suffering to people, Sarts assessed.

"In recent months, Russia has been saving its precision missiles. Yesterday it used at least 100 precision missiles without any military effect. Therefore, there is no doubt who gave the order for the attacks and for whom the Crimean bridge was very important," said Sarts.
