The Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned world leaders that if they interfere with the invasion in Ukraine then they “will face consequences greater than any you have faced in history.”

In a broadcast on Thursday morning Putin gave the chilling warning and said, “To anyone who would consider interfering from the outside – if you do, you will face consequences greater than any you have faced in history.”

Putin told the Ukrainian military to “lay down their arms and go home,” and warned that Russia will not exist with a “constant threat emanating from the territory of Ukraine.”

Putin said that clashes between Russian and Ukrainian soldiers was “inevitable” and said he wants to “demilitarize” and “de-Nazify,” not occupy Ukraine.

Soon after Putin’s statement missiles strikes hit multiple areas and cities across Ukraine including the capital.

By mid morning on Thursday Russia started a second wave of air strikes, missiles strikes and Odessa has seen heavy bombing which is the home of Ukraine’s navy which has been crushed.

Ground troops are attacking in Kharkiv and Mariupol and other eastern cities and haunting sound of air raid sirens have been heard all over the country.

Ukraine’s border guards said they are under attack “with the use of artillery, heavy equipment and firearms” in the regions of Luhansk, Sumy, Kharkiv, Chernihiv and Zhytomyr.

The Kremlin have reported that they have now “disabled” the Ukraine’s air force and the military infrastructure has been “incapacitated.”

The Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dmytro Kuleba, said that Russia has launched a “full-scale invasion of Ukraine” and their peaceful cities are “under attack” by Russian forces.

He said, “This is a war of aggression. Ukraine will defend itself and will win.

“The world can and must stop Putin. The time to act is now.”

Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission said, “Later today, we will present a package of massive and targeted sanctions to European leaders for approval.

“With this package, we will target strategic sectors of the Russian economy by blocking their access to technologies and markets that are key for Russia.

“We will weaken Russia’s economic base and its capacity to modernise. In addition, we will freeze Russian assets in the European Union and stop the access of Russian banks to European financial markets.”

Speaking in Brussels, she added, “Like with the first package of sanctions, we are closely aligned with our partners and allies, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, but also, for example, Japan and Australia.

“These sanctions are designed to take a heavy toll on the Kremlin’s interests and their abilities.”
