Shelling of strategic points throughout Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin has launched a military strike against Ukraine, with shelling at strategic points across the country. Putin announced a "special military operation" in the Donbas early Thursday morning. In a televised message, he urged the Ukrainian military to lay down their arms and issued a warning to the world: "Whoever tries to interfere and, even more, whoever tries to create threats to our country and our people, let them know that Russia will respond immediately with consequences they have never seen in history." Since morning explosions are reported in the Ukrainian capital Kiev, in Karkiev, in Mariupol, and in Odessa. The Ukrainian army reports heavy shelling in the east of the country. Kiev says there are already 8 dead. Zelenski himself speaks of a "large-scale military invasion". Ukrainian border guards claim that Russian troops have already begun to enter Ukraine through Crimea, illegally annexed in 2014.
