Defense sources told the Mirror that the Russian President had ordered it to be used as part of his “shock and awe” campaign.

Most damage is caused by ultrasonic shock waves and extreme heat.

Sources added that the bomb – it was also supposedly used in Syria– will be dropped to mark the beginning of the war and break Ukrainian morale.

“The impact will be devastating,” they said.

“This is almost a psychological weapon and will cause massive casualties as well as damage to tanks.”

NATO head Jens Stoltenberg told German broadcaster ARD: “Every indication is that Russia is planning an all-out attack against Ukraine.

“We all agree that the risk of an attack is very high.”

Meanwhile, it is estimated that around 10 explosions were heard in shelling across Donetsk.

Shelling was reported across the region as Ukraine, Russia and the separatists pointed fingers at each other during clashes.

There were reports of shells falling within Russia’s borders, at least two Ukrainian soldiers were killed, and loud explosions were heard throughout the Donbas.

At least one car bomb was detonated east of the city of Donetsk overnight.

Both separatist groups ordered mass evacuations yesterday as they accused Ukraine of planning a large-scale attack – including that Kyiv would blow up a chemical plant.

And now both have also announced the “full mobilization” of their military forces.

According to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), 591 ceasefire violations and 553 explosions were recorded in Donetsk and 975 ceasefire violations and 860 explosions in Luhansk.

The prime minister considered the bombing a “false flag operation designed to discredit the Ukrainian people” and said attacks of this kind would escalate over the next few days.

Boris Johnson warned today that a Russian invasion of Ukraine may have happened be “moved”. ”

“If Ukraine is invaded, the shock will reverberate around the world,” he said in a speech at the Munich Security Conference, where Western leaders gathered to negotiate the crisis.

He also said that Moscow is planning “the biggest war in Europe since 1945.”

Earlier today, the President of Russia watched strategic nuclear exercises involving launch hypersonic ballistic missile and other weapons to show strength.

Two ballistic missiles were launched – one from a site in northwestern Russia and the second from a submarine in the Barents Sea – and hit targets thousands of miles away, according to the Kremlin. .

The exercises include launches from ships, submarines and fighter jets as well as from land.

The Kremlin has denied the war games marked a military escalation and insisted they were part of regular training.

Putin is expected to deploy a force of up to 200,000 soldiers, backed by tanks, artillery and armored vehicles on the edge of the former Soviet state.

Earlier today, Denis Pushilin, the head of the pro-Russian separatist government in Ukraine’s Donetsk region, cited the threat of immediate aggression from Ukrainian forces in his announcement.

Ukrainian officials vehemently deny that there are plans to seize rebel-held areas by force.

“I appeal to all men in the republic who can take up arms to protect their families, their children, their wives, their mothers,” he said.

“Together, we will achieve the coveted victory we all need.”

A similar statement was issued later from his counterpart in the Luhansk region.

Meanwhile, Germany and Austria have warned their citizens to leave Ukraine while Lufthansa canceled flights to Kyiv and Odessa.

NATO’s liaison office in Kyiv said it was moving staff to Brussels and the western Ukrainian city of Lviv.

The British Embassy in Kyiv announced moving 336 miles to the west, close to the Polish border.
