In Kiev, British MP Tobias Ellwood warned of Russian-plotted terror attacks all over Ukraine and cyber assaults spearheading an all-out offensive.

First, a village kindergarten in Stanytsia Luhanska was hit at 9am, injuring two civilians and leaving the community without electricity. An hour later at Popasna, 50 miles away, a school and two houses were hit, again not killing anyone.
