Russia ramps up “revenge” attacks

Russia has launched renewed attacks on several Ukrainian cities as it seemingly ramps up revenge for the attack on its flagship Black Sea vessel which Ukrainian forces sank last week.

The attacks have now targeted cities including Lviv in the west, which had largely escaped unscathed until now

According to the BBC, seven people are dead after four rockets hit military facilities and a car tyre service point in Lviv.

Blasts have also been reported in the capital Kyiv

The city of Kharkiv in the north and the southern city of Mykolaiv, near the port of Odesa, have also been targeted.
