Ukraine mounted a counter-attack in Sievierodonetsk after days of retreating from the city, saying it took the Russian troops by surprise.

After recapturing a large portion of the key industrial city in the Donbas, Ukrainian forces were now in control of half of it and continuing to push the Russians back, according to Luhansk region governor Serhiy Haidai.

Meanwhile, a barrage of Russian missiles hit infrastructure targets in Kyiv early Sunday morning in the first strike against the Ukrainian capital since the end of April. 

Nobody was reported killed, while one person was taken to a hospital with injuries, Kyiv Mayor Vitalii Klitschko said.
