A devastating image of a baby being cradled by a soldier near a scene of total destruction has provided a shocking glimpse into the human horror of the Russian invasion.

Vladimir Putin’s forces are attacking Ukrainian cities with more and more shells, and as tanks move through the scenes of devastation, they are beamed around the world and buildings are leveled.

New images from Irpin, on the outskirts of Kyiv, show dystopian scenes with collapsed apartment blocks and blown-up vehicles as people walk around in a daze.

One image shows a bridge destroyed by an attack, with debris, twisted metal and cables lying in water and mud.

In the foreground is a soldier carrying a baby, unaware of the destruction all around them.

There are many other horrific images of the attack on the city, while the images were mirrored by other cities in Ukraine.

Moscow’s attack on Ukraine, the largest attack on a European state since World War II, has created over a million refugees, a spate of sanctions and fears of a global economic hit and a wider conflict in the West unthought of in decades Has.

Ukrainians say their resolve is as strong as ever as fighting rages on with Russian troops besieging and bombarding cities in the second week of an invasion that has isolated Moscow – saying their attack was a ” special operation”.

Kyiv, on the path of a Russian tank column that had been stuck outside the Ukrainian capital for days, came under renewed attack, with explosions heard from the city centre.

Europe’s largest nuclear power plant had also been confiscated.

The southeastern port city of Mariupol – a key point for Russian forces – was surrounded and shelled. According to Mayor Vadym Boychenko, there is no water, heating or electricity and food is running out after five days of the attack.

“We’ll just be destroyed,” he said.

Putin’s actions have been condemned almost universally, and many countries have imposed heavy sanctions as the West balances punishment with avoiding a widening of the conflict.

Moscow denies attacking civilians in Ukraine and says its goal is to disarm its neighbor, counter what it sees as NATO aggression and capture leaders it calls neo-Nazis.

Ukraine and its Western allies call this a baseless pretext for a war to conquer a country of 44 million people.

More EU sanctions are on the horizon, including a possible ban on Russian-flagged ships in European ports and blocking imports of steel, timber, aluminum or coal, Irish Foreign Secretary Simon Coveney has said.

The United States is considering cuts in Russian oil imports and ways to minimize the impact on global supplies and consumers, while lawmakers speed up legislation that would ban Russian energy imports entirely.

In the Borshchahivka district of Kiev, the broken engine of a cruise missile lay on the street, where it was apparently shot down by Ukrainian air defenses overnight.

Ukraine’s presidential aide Oleksiy Arestovych said an advance on the southern port of Mykolayiv had been halted. If captured, the city of 500,000 would be the largest yet to fall.

Russian forces have made their biggest advances in the south, where they captured their first major Ukrainian city, Kherson, this week.

Bombing in the northeastern cities of Kharkiv and Chernihiv has intensified in recent days and Ukrainians have fled west, many huddled in Lviv near the Polish border.

James Elder of the United Nations Children’s Organization said doctors in Lviv are preparing a system to identify children in case of mass casualties.

“A green dot means good over here, a yellow dot means critical support. They’re learning, a black dot means the kid can’t make it,” he said.
