Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy accused Russian forces of committing acts of terror, as the Kremlin stepped up its offensive despite rising international anger and a barrage of sanctions directed at Moscow. 

Russian troops continued to shell military and civilian facilities alike, the Ukrainian General Staff HQ said Tuesday morning, as satellite images showed a massive Russian column of armor on the road to Kyiv. Russia’s Defense Ministry said later that it plans to strike Ukrainian security service targets inside the capital to take out the source of “information attacks,” according to Interfax.
