Earlier this week, Russia unleashed its most widespread strike against Ukraine in months. The deadly attack hit civilian targets with both missiles and drones.

On this week’s episode of “The Hunt with WTOP national security correspondent J.J. Green,” Yuriy Sak, an adviser to Ukraine’s minister of defense, says it was a miracle that he and many others survived an attack on a school playground.
