SICK Vladimir Putin has unleashed a new rocket attack that hit a school and killed a person at a car dealership in Ukraine, while sirens rang out across the country.
At least nine explosions were heard overnight in Zaporizhia, hitting a residential building and a medical clinic.
Blasts were also heard in the port cities of Odessa and Vinnytsia on Ukraine’s Black Sea coast – although it’s not yet clear if there were casualties.
And a Russian missile was shot down by fighter jets over Kyiv.
It comes as raid sirens were activated in all regions of Ukraine.
The country’s emergency services have urged residents to stay indoors.
“Warning. During the day there is a high probability of missile attacks on the territory of Ukraine. Please stay in shelters for your own safety, do not ignore air raid signals,” the messaging app Telegram said.
They also said 19 people were killed and 105 injured in Monday’s rocket attacks.
Harrowing footage of the disaster in the city of Zaporizhzhia shows firefighters racing to evacuate people from a blown-up apartment building.
Meanwhile, firefighters were seen battling a massive inferno that killed one person at a Skoda dealership.
The footage shows sheets of metal scattered on the ground and what appears to be the body of a mutilated civilian.

Anatoly Kurtev, a senior member of the Zaporizhia City Council, blamed Russia for the “terrorist” attack.
He wrote on Telegram: “As a result of the morning rocket attack, an educational institution, a medical facility and residential buildings were also damaged. Unfortunately, there are victims.”
“Russia is a terrorist country.”
