What's going on in Ukraine today - and what happened overnight? Ukraine is still responding to heavy bombardment that hit the capital of Kyiv and several other cities on Friday, knocking out power and water supplies for thousands. Today, the body of a toddler was pulled from rubble in a pre-dawn search for survivors of a missile strike that tore through an block of flats in the central Ukrainian city of Kryvyi Rih.
The missile was one of what Ukrainian authorities said were 16 that got through air defences among the 76 missiles fired on Friday in the latest Russian attack targeting Ukrainian energy infrastructure, part of Moscow's strategy to leave Ukrainian civilians and soldiers in the dark and cold this winter.

"Russians are still trying to encircle it, they are taking huge casualties, " he said.
