Ukrainians in the capital Kyiv huddled in air raid shelters Friday morning, as a battle for the city raged overhead and Ukrainian forces sought to hold back rapidly advancing Russian troops by blowing up a key bridge.
Explosions and bursts of gunfire could be heard on the streets of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv Saturday morning, as the country’s military battled to hold back advancing Russian troops amid defiant calls for residents to resist and stand their ground.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky turned down an offer from the US to evacuate from the capital city Kyiv, the Ukraine embassy in Britain said on Twitter. According to the embassy, Zelensky said: “The fight is here; I need ammunition, not a ride”.
What people are saying?
Kentucky Gentleman Imagine if instead of foolishly invading Iraq and going into Afghanistan we had held back and instead been in a better position to directly help the Ukrainian people who truly understand democracy and are willing to sacrifice to maintain it.
ik So when US invaded Afghanistan- the people of Afghanistan fought back and were called terrorists! What do we call the Ukrainians fighting back? The west hypocrisy has caused this huge setback for Ukraine. They left ukraine in a ditch.
