KYIV, Ukraine (AP) – Russian airstrikes have targeted Ukraine’s energy facilities as the first snow of the season fell in Kyiv.

The freezing weather on Thursday is a harbinger of the hardship to come if Moscow’s missiles keep taking out Ukraine’s power and gas plants.

Separately, the United Nations announced the extension of a deal to ensure exports of grain and fertilizers from Ukraine that were disrupted by the war.

The deal was set to expire soon, renewing fears of a global food crisis.

Still, air raid sirens sounded across Ukraine on Thursday.

At least seven people were killed in Russian drone and missile strikes.

One hit a residential building and rescue workers were still searching Thursday for more victims amid the rubble.
