Ukraine has been hit with multiple airstrikes, and Russia has started pressing its invasion towards the outskirts of their capital, making cities and military bases major targets.
Lately, explosions sounded before dawn on Friday in Kyiv and gunfire was later heard near the government quarter as Western leaders scheduled an emergency meeting and Ukraine’s president pleaded for international help to fend off an attack that could topple his democratically elected government and cause massive casualties.
Ukraine Military Spots Russian Spies
The Ukrainian military said a group of Russian spies and saboteurs had been seen in a district of Kyiv about three miles north of the centre, and police told people not to exit a subway station in the city centre because there was gunfire in the area.
Elsewhere in the capital, soldiers established defensive positions at bridges, and armoured vehicles rolled down the streets while many residents stood uneasily in the doorways of their apartment buildings.
It was initially reported that the military said that Russian forces had seized two Ukrainian military vehicles and some were heading towards the city to try to infiltrate under the guise of being locals.
