The Russian military has seized two vehicles of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, changed into Ukrainian uniforms, and is moving to the center of Kyiv. According to the Deputy Defense Minister, they will be followed by a column of Russian military trucks.
According to Ukraine’s deputy defense minister, Russian troops dressed in Ukrainian uniforms were able to seize Ukrainian military vehicles, which are now on their way to Kyiv.
Russian forces arrived on the outskirts of Kyiv this morning, sparking heavy fighting between the two countries’ armies.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated that the invading troops were targeting civilians, and explosions were heard in Kyiv.
The pre-dawn explosions in Kyiv kicked off Day 2 of President Vladimir Putin’s invasion, despite Western warnings.
After the initial explosions, Ukraine Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba posted on Twitter, “Horrific Russian rocket strikes on Kyiv.”
“The last time our capital was subjected to such an attack was in 1941 when it was attacked by Nazi Germany. Ukraine overcame that evil, and it will overcome this one as well.”
Zelensky then sent a video message in which he slammed Russian troops.
“They claim that civilian objects are not a target. But this is yet another of their lies. In reality, they make no distinction between the sectors in which they operate “According to Zelensky.
“Our skies are being defended by Ukrainian air defense systems,” he said. “Ukrainians are displaying heroism.”
According to Ukraine’s President, at least 137 “heroes” were killed on the first day of fighting.
