But before we go, here’s a recap of today’s main developments:

  • Russia has unleashed two waves of missile strikes across Ukraine, with strikes reported in the capital Kyiv, as well as the eastern Kharkiv and western Lviv regions, and other parts of the country
  • At least five people have died and 39 were injured – including seven children – after a missile hit a residential building in the city of Dnipro, the region’s governor has confirmed
  • Emergency services are working to rescue people from the rubble, with 20 pulled from the smoking remnants of the block of flats so far
  • Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko has warned of ”difficult days” ahead after Russian missile strikes damaged energy facilities in six Ukrainian regions
  • Debris from a missile strike on western Ukraine has also been found in neighbouring Moldova
  • Meanwhile, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has confirmed the government will provide Challenger 2 tanks to Ukraine in a call with Volodymyr Zelensky
  • Thanking the UK, Ukraine’s president said the Challenger 2s both strengthen them on the battlefield and ”send the right signal” to other allies
  • The supply of main battle tanks to support Ukraine could mark a significant moment if other allied nations follow suit to supply them, the BBC’s defence correspondent Jonathan Beale says
