Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has announced and warned his country’s citizens that Russian troops are preparing to storm Kyiv.
Zelenskyy in his statement urged them “to stop the enemy wherever you can”.
After unleashing airstrikes, Russian tanks rolled into Kyiv on Friday, and troops were descending on the capital from two fronts.
His social media post read; “This night the enemy will use all its forces to break our resistance – vile, cruel and inhuman.
“Tonight they will storm.
“We have to persevere tonight. The fate of Ukraine is being decided right now.
“Every civilian should be as careful as possible, please help each other, especially the elderly, those who are currently in great difficulty. In case of any danger, go to the shelter.
“Anyone who has already joined the defence of the country or can help the defence – stop the enemy wherever you can.”
