And the attack showed no sign of letting up today, as Mykolaiv, in the south of Ukraine, came under attack with Russian forces moved within striking distance of the city centre. The city is located just a few miles from Kherson, which fell to Putin's men earlier in the week, along the road to Odessa - Ukraine's third-largest city and main port.
However, reports emerged on Friday evening that an attack on an airport on the outskirts of the city had been repulsed, with Ukrainian forces digging in for fresh fighting overnight.
But Ukraine's military did managed to pull off some successes. Two Russian jets were downed near Volnovakha, in the east near Donetsk, while Ukrainian special forces also ambushed two of the Kremlin's tank columns at Hostomel and Brovary, leaving large numbers of troops dead and destroying vehicles.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed Russian citizens after Putin's troops seized the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in the early hours.
Zelensky appeared on video as he urged Russian residents to tell authorities that they want to live on land 'without radioactive contamination', amid fears of a meltdown following the attack on Europe's largest power station.
