As Russian troops are continuously stepping ahead in the capital city of Ukraine, the mayor of Kyiv on Saturday (February 26) announced the clampdown in the city.

While taking it to Twitter, Kyiv mayor Vitaly Klitschko wrote, “The prolonged curfew will last from 5 pm until 8 am every day to ensure the more effective defence of the city and the safety of the people.” Earlier the curfew was imposed in the capital city from 10 pm to 7 am.


Meanwhile, Klitschko said, “All civilians on the street during the curfew will be considered members of the enemy sabotage and reconnaissance groups.”

According to an adviser to the interior minister, “On Saturday morning, a missile hit a high-rise apartment building in Kyiv’s southwestern outskirts. Whereas, no casualties were reported.”

It is still not clear how far will Russia move in. Kyiv has witnessed a night of explosions and street fighting, forcing its residents to seek shelter underground. Ukrainian officials have also reported some successful retaliation, but fighting continues in the capital.

Shedding some light on the ongoing Russian invasion, the UK Ministry of Defence on Saturday said that the bulk of the Russian forces is now 30 kilometres from the centre of Kyiv.

The Defence Ministry shared the intelligence update on Twitter and wrote, “Russian forces have continued their advance on Kyiv with the bulk of their forces now 30km from the centre of the city.”
