Russia has hit Ukraine with multiple rocket attacks across the country with explosions in Kyiv, Lviv and Kharkiv, sources say.
Many Ukrainians have taken to social media to report heavy shelling of Kharkiv to the east, but also Lviv to the west and the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv.
Air raid sirens sounded throughout the night in major Ukrainian cities, and there were also claims that the shelling came from the direction of Belarus.
One person said the bombings in Zhytomyr, west of Kyiv, were the worst yet.
“Zhytomyr will be blown up today, we’ve already had three or four attacks (and I’m even silent about explosions now, there are already so many of them that I don’t notice). You sit there and think and think it stopped and then it starts again. Our city has never been besieged like this. I hope you are okay,” she wrote on Twitter.
One person in Kyiv said they heard 11 explosions and another heard warplanes over the Ukrainian capital.
Similarly, one Twitter user wrote: “A series of powerful explosions in Kyiv, new explosions rock Zhytomyr. A massive rocket attack has been launched on targets in the capital and we don’t know what the results are.
“We can hear anti-aircraft missiles in the sky, along with missiles from aircraft, probably from Belarus.”
Some have also posted images from Kyiv that appear to show missiles in the sky.
