A harrowing photo of a man mourning over the body of his supposed son underscores the grim reality of the war raging.

As the sun rose over Ukraine this morning, the initial numbers of Russian missile attacks on densely populated cities began to become apparent.

Officials said an attack on an army unit in Podilsk, on the outskirts of Odessa, left six people dead and seven wounded.

In Donbas, in the breakaway Donetsk region in the east of the country, a man was seen crying over the body of what is believed to be his son, who appeared to have been killed during one of the strikes. .

Among the rubble below him was a dead man, lying face down in the ruins of a building.

Footage of the devastation from cities including Donbas, Kyiv, Chuhuiv and Uman shows that early death tolls will rise dramatically.

Unconfirmed footage and graphics from Uman in the center of the country show a woman lying dead in the street with blood seeping from the sides of the blanket covering her.

An apartment complex in Chuhuiv, in the northeast, was completely destroyed by an explosion that knocked out all its windows and ripped off its balcony.

According to Bellingcat’s analysis, the apartment complex is likely to be damaged due to its proximity to the nearby airport.

The explosion is believed to have claimed the life of at least one person.

According to Amnesty International’s previous analysis of the attacks on Gaza, the indiscriminate use of weapons against civilian areas could constitute a war crime.

“You can see the utter devastation caused by this indiscriminate attack on an apparently civilian target,” defense analyst Jimmy Sec wrote on Twitter about the apartment complex attack.

“This is a clear and unequivocal war crime.”

Then an explosion was heard in the city of Ivano-Frankivsk in western Ukraine, with reports that the airport there was hit by rockets.

Dmytro Kuleba, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, condemned the strikes early this morning.

“Putin just launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine,” he tweeted.

“The peaceful cities of Ukraine are on strike. This is a war of aggression.

“Ukraine will defend itself and will prevail. The world can and must stop Putin. Now is the time to act.”

How Western forces will react to the invasion remains to be seen, with the EU, UK and US to be announced later today.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “I am appalled by the appalling events in Ukraine and I have spoken with President Zelenskyy to discuss next steps.

“President Putin chose the path of bloodshed and destruction by launching this unprovoked attack on Ukraine. The UK and our allies will respond decisively.”

The Prime Minister chaired a meeting of Cobra this morning ahead of the House of Commons speech later today.
