A Russian rocket has landed in another European country hours after Moscow launched another series of rocket and missile attacks on Ukraine.
Vladimir Putin launched more than 100 rockets with Ukraine activating their air raid sirens as a “large scale” missile attack hit Ukraine.

Residents were told to “Stay in shelters, warn your relatives!” and Andriy Yermak, head of the Ukrainian presidential staff, warned, “Don’t ignore the alarm.”

Nataliya Gumenyuk, the spokeswoman for Ukraine’s Southern Defence Forces, warned that a “massive” Russian attack will be coming.
She told Ukraine’s Channel 24 that Moscow intends them to sow “terror” adding, “We understand that a massive attack is being prepared and is possible any day,” Gumenyuk said over the weekend.

Gumenyuk said, “For almost two weeks, the enemy has not launched massive missile strikes.
“However, this pause may end at any time.”
