Breaking: Russia Invades Ukraine Photos & Video updated daily

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russia launched a wide-ranging attack on Ukraine on Thursday, hitting cities and bases with airstrikes or shelling, as civilians piled into trains and cars to flee. Ukraine’s government said Russian tanks and troops rolled across the border in a “full-scale war” that could rewrite the geopolitical order and whose fallout already reverberated around the world.

International condemnation of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s pre-dawn attack against Ukraine mounted Thursday, as U.S. and Western allies prepared to impose punishing sanctions against Moscow for a stunning full-scale invasion that global leaders had been warning about for weeks. 

“This is a brutal act of war,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Thursday.

Translation: “Me, a lieutenant in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, company commander. Here are my warriors. We are not afraid, we are not panicking. We do not lay down our arms and we will not succumb to any tyrants.
We will not allow any murderers to impose their will on us. We will not give you a millimeter of our own land. Maybe this is our last recording. I don’t know if I was a good or bad person, or what God will say. But I know that I am a good citizen and a good soldier. I am the protector of my homeland. The guarantor of her peace. Her shield and sword in time of war. You who come here whoever you are, whatever you are, who invade our house – get out of our land. We’ll fight you until the last bullet. And when they’re over, we’ll fight you with our bare fists. We will fight you on land, in water, underground and in the air. Neither of you will get out of here alive. You will all die. And our land will be free. Glory to Ukraine. Glory heroes.”
