Russian shelling and airstrikes have hit multiple targets across Ukraine and five people were reportedly killed in the shelling of the city of Kharkiv, officials say.
Another 13 people were injured in Kharkiv as Putin’s airstrikes wreak even more terror and destruction.
Ukrainian authorities condemned Russian artillery attacks on towns in the northeast and the ongoing siege of the southern port city of Mariupol.
Moscow said it had almost taken full control after nearly two months of bloody fighting.
After failing to overcome Ukrainian resistance in the north, the Russian military refocused its ground offensive on the Donbass and launched long-range attacks on other targets, including the capital Kyiv.
In Mykolayiv, near the port of Odessa, the governor has claimed that there have been constant rocket attacks.
The news comes as President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy has warned that “we must prepare” for a Russian nuclear attack and has urged the world to stock up on anti-radiation drugs and build bomb shelters.
