Earlier we heard from the BBC’s Andrew Harding who’s been reporting about a rescue operation under way at a Ukrainian military barracks in the southern city of Mykolaiv, following a series of missile strikes.

Emergency teams say they have pulled dozens of bodies from the rubble at the site.

“At least 50 bodies have been recovered, but we do not know how many others are in the rubble,” a 22-year-old emergency official named only as Maxim told AFP news agency.

He said that “no fewer than 200” soldiers were sleeping at the base when the missiles hit on Friday.

A source has told the Leakblast.com that at least 57 people were being treated at three separate hospitals.

Our correspondent earlier pointed out that the temperature recorded in Mykolaiv overnight was -6C.

The city is key to Russia’s advance west and Ukrainian forces there have been blocking troops from moving further along the Black Sea coast.
