Russia unleashed a "massive" assault on Ukraine with dozens of missiles and drones, resulting in casualties and widespread destruction.

The Wednesday morning attack, which claimed the lives of at least five people and injured over 30, coincided with the visit of the EU's top diplomat to Kyiv.

As Ukraine reels from the onslaught, officials urgently appeal to Western allies for increased military aid, including vital air defenses.

The barrage of strikes struck various regions across Ukraine, including the capital Kyiv, where a residential building was hit, claiming four lives and sparking a devastating fire.

President Volodymyr Zelensky denounced the attack as another heinous assault on the country.


The assault extended beyond Kyiv, with missile and drone attacks recorded in multiple cities and regions, underscoring the indiscriminate nature of the aggression.
