Volodymyr Zelensky calls not to lay down arms and defend Kiev

5:30 am: Situation update with breaks today in Ukraine

It’s 6:30 a.m. in Ukraine, and Russian forces made no significant progress overnight:

– In Kiev, Ukrainian forces claimed that they repelled a Russian “attack” on Victory Street. Fierce battles were heard throughout the night, but they remained relatively isolated.

Ukrainian forces claimed to have shot down two IL-76 military transport aircraft. The information has not been independently confirmed. If so, it would be a major victory for Ukraine’s anti-aircraft defense, which is seen as a major weakness. These aircraft can carry up to 150 paratroopers and light armor.

– In the south, the city of Kherson was severely damaged but the former spokesman for Zelensky confirmed at 6 am (local time) that the city was still under Ukrainian control.
