Editor's Note

The war in Ukraine continues to rage on - contrary to what your social or traditional media channels may suggest. The Guardian reports on yesterday's a deadly attack in the city of Vinnytsia.

Russian missiles have struck civilian buildings and a cultural centre in the city of Vinnytsia, in central Ukraine, killing at least 23 people – including three children – and wounding dozens more in what President Volodymyr Zelenskiy called “an open act of terrorism”.

The attack on Vinnytsia, far from the war’s frontlines, occurred in mid-morning when the streets were full of people. It appeared to hit a business centre, setting cars on fire and sending plumes of thick black smoke over the city.
