Russia has invaded Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin told the nation just before 6am on Thursday in Moscow – saying he was launching a ‘special military operation’ but was not intending on occupying the country.

As he was speaking, the United Nations Security Council was holding an emergency session, and urging Putin to pull back.

Explosions were reported in the southern Ukrainian city of Mariupol in the early hours of Thursday, and unverified footage on social media showed flashpoints across the south of Ukraine. 

Antonio Guterres, the Secretary General of the United Nations, urged Vladimir Putin to stop his tanks.
