Ukraine Readies For "Relentless Defence" Of Kyiv As Russian Forces Advance:
Ukraine prepared Sunday for a "relentless defence" of Kyiv as the capital faced possible encirclement by Russian forces who also launched an air strike on a military base outside the city of Lviv, near the Polish border.
In a video address posted on social media late Saturday night, President Volodymyr Zelensky was adamant that the Russians would not take Ukraine.
"The Russian invaders cannot conquer us. They do not have such strength. They do not have such spirit. They are holding only on violence. Only on terror. Only on weapons, which they have a lot," he said.
Local officials said Russian forces had fired eight missiles at a military training ground about 40 kilometres (25 miles) northeast of Lviv, which is a hub for joint exercises between Ukrainian soldiers and NATO allies.
The head of the Lviv regional administration, Maxim Kozitsky, said there was no information yet on casualties. --->READ MORE HERE
President Zelensky tells Ukraine 'we must hold on, we must fight' after visiting wounded soldiers in hospital to hand out medals:
President Volodymyr Zelensky has urged Ukrainians to hold on and fight as he delivered his latest speech following a hospital visit to see wounded soldiers.
The president described Sunday as 'the 18th day of our war for life, for Ukraine, for independence' and condemned the latest attack near the Polish border.
He warned NATO Monday that its member states would soon be attacked by Russian forces after an air strike hit a Ukrainian military base less than 25 kilometers (15 miles) from the Polish border
Zelenskyy said in his nightly address on Sunday that Russia fired 30 rockets at the Yavoriv military base. He said the attack killed 35 people and injured 134 injured others.
Meanwhile, the death toll in the strategic southern port city of Mariupol, facing acute deprivation amid a prolonged siege, has topped 2,000, officials there said.
'If you do not close our sky, it is only a matter of time before Russian missiles fall on your territory, on NATO territory, on the homes of NATO citizens,' Zelensky said in a video address released shortly after midnight, urging NATO to impose a no-fly zone over his country. --->READ MORE HERE
