At least five people are dead and dozens more wounded after another Russian mass missile attack on cities across Ukraine on Wednesday morning.

Four people are known to have died in Kyiv and one in Mykolaiv.

In a post on Telegram, President Zelensky said said six areas of the country had come under attack including the Kharkiv and Lviv regions.

He added: “My condolences to all those who have lost family and friends. We will certainly respond to Russia – terrorists will always feel the consequences of their actions.”

Kyiv Post reporters in the capital were woken by an air raid alert just before 6 a.m.
