Russian forces have launched a major military assault on Ukraine
Ukraine: Russia’s President Vladimir Putin ordered a “military operation” in Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region in a televised address early Friday, but what has been launched goes far beyond that and amounts to a full-scale attack on the country.
Russian military vehicles are said to have crossed the border in a number of locations, including Belarus, in the north, south, and east. According to police, at least seven people have been killed in Russian attacks.
Another 19 people have gone missing. Within the last hour, multiple explosions have been heard in Odesa.
According to the Ukrainian president’s office, more than 40 Ukrainian troops have been killed as a result of Russian shelling, but this has not been independently confirmed.
