President Putin insists that only military targets are being attacked but many ordinary people, often trying to flee the violence, have been killed.
How that happens was made terrifyingly clear to one of our Sky News teams reporting from there this week.
Russian forces were nowhere to be seen as Stuart Ramsay’s team carefully drove through a town near Kiyv on Monday afternoon.
But, without warning, they came under heavy and sustained gunfire from what the Ukrainians believe to be a Russian reconnaissance squad.
Incredibly Stuart, his producers, Dominique Van Heerden, Martin Vowles and Andrii Lytvynenko and his camera operator Richie Mockler escaped with their lives.
Sky News has decided to tell the story of what happened to show the sheer scale of the mayhem and violence as the Russian invasion enters a new, and very deadly phase. The team are now safely back in the UK.
