Civilians in Ukraine can ‘freely’ leave Kyiv, Russian army

As the Russian invasion reached its fifth day, the Russian army announced Monday that Ukrainian residents could “freely” leave the country’s capital, Kyiv, and that its airforce ruled the skies of Ukraine.

“On the Kyiv-Vasylkiv highway, all residents in the city are free to depart the Ukrainian capital.” In televised remarks, Russian defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov stated, “This direction is open and secure.”

Vasylkiv is a town in Ukraine’s southwest region.

Konashenkov warned that Russia was about to attack Kyiv’s civilian districts, accusing Ukrainian forces of using citizens as human shields.

He claims that civilians are being exploited to cover “nationalists who have stationed artillery detachments and military equipment in residential areas” by referencing Ukraine’s suggestion to Kyiv residents to stay at home and obey a midnight curfew.

He went on to say that Kyiv had been taken over by “gangs of looters, robbers, and nationalists” who had been given firearms by the authorities.

Konashenkov said that Russian aircraft had superior air power over the “entire region of Ukraine,” citing Moscow’s military achievements.

Russian troops have gained control of Berdyansk, a port city in Ukraine’s southeast, and Energodar, which has a big nuclear power facility, according to Konashenkov.
