The Russians are pushing towards the Ukrainian capital; residents take shelter

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukrainians brace for another night of assaults as Russian troops close in on the capital of Kyiv and skirmishes break out on the city’s outskirts.

Small groups of Russian soldiers were reported in the capital on Saturday, where the calm was sporadically disturbed by the sound of gunfire.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has insisted the country’s fight will continue while continuing to plead for help.

Much of it remained shadowed by the fog of war, but dozens were reportedly killed and the United Nations said some 120,000 Ukrainians had been driven from their homes to neighboring countries.

How much territory, if any, Russia may have seized remains unknown.
