Russian forces reach Kyiv


Explosions from what Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called “horrific Russian rocket strikes” were heard in Ukraine’s capital on Friday morning amid unverified reports that the fighting had already reached the heart of Kyiv. Russian media quoted anonymous officials in Moscow denying any airstrikes on Kyiv, but videos posted online showed what residents said were Russian tanks driving through their city, and gunfire was heard in the capital.


Ukrainian officials said Thursday that the country was fighting on multiple fronts to repel a “full-scale invasion,” as President Joe Biden accused Vladimir Putin of choosing to carry out “a premeditated war that will bring a catastrophic loss of life and human suffering.”
