One hundred missiles were launched by Russia at targets across Ukraine today – just hours after President Volodmyr Zelensky addressed the G20 calling for an end to the war.

According to Ukraine's Air Force, Russia mainly targeted energy infrastructure across Ukraine but residential buildings were also hit.

The Kyiv Independent reported sound of explosions in Ukraine’s capital at around 1.15pm this afternoon.

A video published by the Deputy Head of the President’s Office Kyrylo Tymoshenko shows an apartment building engulfed in flamed after the missile attack.

A rescue mission is reportedly underway.

The Ukrainian leader addressed world leaders via Videolink this afternoon and said he was ready to end the war but that Russia had to withdraw all troops from his territory first.

President Vladimir Putin was long expected to attend the summit in Bali, but is sending his foreign minister Sergei Lavrvov in his place, as he continues to suffer military setbacks and unanimous condemnation from Western powers.

Rishi Sunak also confronted Lavrov telling him to 'get out of Ukraine and end this barbaric war'.

In the first face-to-face meeting between a British Prime Minister and a senior Russian leader since the war began he said the UK would support Ukraine 'for as long as it takes'.

He explained: "Countries should not invade their neighbours, they should not attack [civilians] and they should not threaten nuclear escalation."
