Kyiv Under Curfew As Shelling Gets Closer to Ukrainian Capital

A 35-hour-long curfew is in place in Ukraine’s capital of Kyiv where shelling is said to be getting closer to the centre.

There’s been fresh shelling of the city reported again overnight, while new assaults have also been reported on the southern city of Mariupol, where an estimated 20-thousand civilians managed to flee through a humanitarian corridor yesterday.

However, a US defence official says Russian troops have made little progress around the country as a whole.

Meanwhile, Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s been visited in Kyiv by the prime ministers of Poland, Slovenia and the Czech Republic, who all made the risky train journey there.

The Ukrainian president’s conceded his country won’t be allowed to join Nato.

He says talks with Russia are making progress but will take time.
