KYIV (Worthy News) – Air raid sirens wailed across Ukraine early Thursday as Russia attacked with dozens of missiles, 24 hours after the U.S. and Germany pledged to send advanced battle tanks to halt the Russian invasion.

Massive explosions were heard in Kyiv, the capital, with authorities saying Russia fired at least 30 missiles toward Ukraine. Half of them were shot down, Ukrainian officials said. There were reports of at least one person killed.

Earlier Ukraine’s air defenses shot down 24 Iranian-made Shahad “kamikaze” drones overnight, according to Ukraine’s military. “We expect more than 30 missiles, which have already started to appear in various territories,” said Ukrainian military spokesperson Yuriy Ignat. “Air defense systems are working.”

Russia had warned the West that its tank deliveries would be a dangerous escalation of the armed conflict in Ukraine.

But Moscow stressed that even the advanced U.S. and German tanks sent to Ukraine would not stop Russia from victory in the country. “The potential it gives to the Ukrainian armed forces is clearly exaggerated,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov claimed. “Those tanks will burn just like any others.”

As attacks intensified Thursday, news emerged that a German citizen was detained at Germany’s Munich airport on suspicion of “treason” for allegedly spying for Russia.

The prosecutor general’s office said Thursday that the man, named Arthur E., was detained Sunday while arriving in Germany from the United States.

He is said to be an associate of Carsten L., an employee of the German foreign intelligence service (BND) who was detained in December on suspicion of spying for Moscow.
