According to preliminary reports from Ukrainian police, around 10 people have been killed and close to 60 injured in Russian early morning strikes on Kyiv. The attacks are seen as retaliation from Moscow for Saturday’s attack on the Kerch bridge which links mainland Russia to the Crimean Peninsula which Russia had annexed from Ukraine in 2014.

The Chancellery of the President announced on Monday via Twitter that President Andrzej Duda had made urgent consultations with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. As reported, the conversation concerned today’s bombing of civilian targets by Russia in Ukraine.

Spoke with President @AndrzejDuda on continued support from #NATO Allies to #Ukraine & thanked him for #Poland's key contributions. #Russia continues its unprovoked aggression against an independent sovereign nation. We will stay the course.
