Explosions reported in Ukraine’s Donbas region as Russia invades

Russian military forces began an attack on Thursday morning in the Ukraine region of Donbas with explosions being heard across the area.

Russian troops have landed in Odessa and have also crossed the border into the northeast of Ukraine.

“Our actions are all self defense and to give people a choice,” Putin said, according to an NBC News translation of his remarks. “We think it’s important that everyone can choose freely who lives in the Ukrainian territories.”

Putin added, “The response from Russia will be so severe, that no foreign nations have ever experienced it before.”

President Joe Biden released a statement on Wednesday night addressing the issue.

“The prayers of the entire world are with the people of Ukraine tonight as they suffer an unprovoked and unjustified attack by Russian military forces,” the president noted.

The new invasion marks a clear change in the developments as Ukraine faces the reality of war.
