Russian forces make limited advances toward Kyiv, Pentagon says:
Russian forces have made incremental progress in their efforts to take the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, according to a senior U.S. defense official.
The official, who spoke to reporters on Thursday, said the Pentagon has assessed that Russian troops have moved about three miles closer to the city center in the past day, after essentially being stalled for multiple days.
“We see Russian forces continue to advance their troops, they’re really along two sort of parallel lines there, and we assess that the northernmost of those two lines, the closest line has reached about 40 kilometers east of Kyiv,” the official said. “You’re starting to see a little bit of that happening in just the last 24 [hours] as they begin to creep a little closer towards Kyiv from the northwest." --->READ MORE HERE
Video shows Russian armored convoy caught in Ukrainian ambush on way to Kyiv:
Dramatic drone footage released by the Ukrainian military Thursday shows Russian tanks being blown up in an ambush on their way toward the capital, Kyiv.
Several tanks and other armored vehicles are seen exploding in the attack by Ukrainian defenders using artillery shells or mines, the Times of London reported.
Analysts said the ambushed convoy included a vehicle carrying a thermobaric rocket launcher.
On Wednesday, the UK Ministry of Defense claimed that Russia has admitted using the “vacuum bombs” in Ukraine.
The British agency said Russia confirmed it has used a mobile rocket-launching system typically equipped with thermobaric warheads, which suck up the air around targets and can rupture people’s lungs.
US officials had earlier confirmed the presence of thermobaric-capable launchers in Ukraine but couldn’t say whether they’d been used. --->READ MORE HERE
