Russian forces fired missiles at several Ukrainian cities and landed troops on Black Sea coast cities of Odessa and Mariupol after Putin authorized what he called a “special military operation in the east”. Explosions were heard in several cities including the capital, Kyiv just after Putin addressed the public on Russian state TV.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Kuleba said on Twitter that Putin launched a full scale invasion of Ukraine and peaceful Ukrainian cities were under attack. Kuleba said the world can and must stop Putin.
Biden called the Russian invasion unprovoked and unjustified. He once again promised harsh sanctions on Russia.
Russia has demanded an end to NATO’s eastward expansion as well as a guarantee that Ukraine will never become a NATO member.
Putin claimed Russia had been left with no choice but to defend itself from what he said were threats coming from Ukraine.
