Russia has struck the Ukrainian capital Kyiv with missiles and other ordnance.

Explosions were heard in multiple cities across the country with tanks pictured crossing from the Belarussian border.  Martial law has been introduced across Ukraine.

The UN Security Council met for a second time in as many days to address the crisis.

Vladimir Putin is unrepentant.
