In a sudden turn of events, Russia has launched an air strike on Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine. According to a city official, the attack was successfully repelled.
This comes at a time when Ukraine has been accused of shifting towards offensive actions against Russia. The BBC had reported earlier this week that military movements by the Ukrainian army were increasing near the conflict zones.
However, Russia has claimed that Ukraine is actually the aggressor, and has been cultivating sabotage agents inside Russia to carry out attacks with drones. CNN reported that Ukraine has been giving these agents drones to carry out the attacks.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Ukraine has indeed launched its biggest attacks in months, prompting an official response from Moscow.
NBC News reported that Russia has accused Ukraine of launching a major attack in the east, further escalating tensions between the two nations.
The situation is rapidly evolving, and all eyes are on the region to see how the conflict will play out.
