Ukraine war: Russia widens attacks, targeting Dnipro for first time

Europe Editor and Presenter

We were woken up in the middle of the night by air raid sirens that we haven’t heard here in a few days.

That’s because the air war has moved to the west of this country.

Russia’s widened offensive involved carrying out airstrikes in this region for the second time since the war began.

Airfields were hit in the cities of Lutsk and Ivano-Frankivsk.

In the east, the major industrial town of Dnipro was also targeted for the first time since the beginning of the invasion.

And the siege of Ukraine’s second city Kharkiv is getting more severe.
