Amid the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskiy has accused Russian forces of committing acts of terror, as the Kremlin stepped up its offensive despite a barrage of sanctions directed at Moscow, Bloomberg reported.

According to the Ukrainian General Staff HQ, the Russian troops continued to shell military and civilian facilities alike as satellite images showed a massive Russian column of armor on the road to Kyiv.

Meanwhile, Russia’s Defense Ministry said it plans to strike Ukrainian security service targets inside the capital to take out the source of “information attacks,” according to Russian news agency Interfax.

The latest developments suggest an escalation in the conflict, with Ukraine pointing to a dangerous shift in approach by Russia. The prime minister of Lithuania, a Baltic state that is a member of the European Union, warned of an impending humanitarian disaster as a result, both inside Ukraine and across its borders, the news agency reported.

As light cleared on the sixth day after President Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Russia’s neighbor, a video published on social media showed a missile striking the main square of Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, as cars drove across it.

“It is terror against the city,” Zelenskiy was quoted as saying.

He added that there were no Ukrainian military forces on the square. He called on the world to condemn “the new tactics” of Russia’s forces, saying that they want to do the same to the capital.
