KABUL (Pajhwok): Russian forces have advanced on the Ukrainian capital Kyive from all directions, with two huge explosions heard south of the city in Vasylkiv on Sunday morning.

In a statement, the Russian Ministry of Defence said its troops had been ordered to resume their offensive “in all directions”.

This comes after Ukraine’s outgunned forces held the capital for the third day on Saturday as the war continued across the country.

A defiant Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told citizens to defend the nation as he himself refused to leave Kyiv.

The United States and European nations announced several measures to support Ukrainian people as they fight to defend their nation:

The United States and its allies agreed Saturday to take aim at Russia through SWIFT, a service that facilitates global transactions among thousands of financial institutions.

The US and others, such as Germany, were speeding badly needed weaponry and supplies to the outgunned Ukrainians, who were refusing to surrender.
