Ukraine War: Russia launches 'vacuum bombs'

Russia has launched devastating ‘vacuum’ bombs on Mariupol.

Ukrainian officials say Russian forces bombed an art school in the city where 400 residents, mostly women and children, had taken refuge.

The city’s mayor has claimed that thousands of residents have been forcibly taken to Russia, a practice he compared to events in the second World War.

While Sky News cannot independently verify the claims, Russia has said it has sent convoys of buses to remove people from the city.

Sky’s Sally Lockwood reports from Western Ukraine.
