Ukraine war: Country is ‘on fire’ President Zelenskyy warns as Russian forces shell Kyiv suburbs

by naijarex

An MP for Kyiv tells Sky’s Alex Crawford: “If they will penetrate the city, we will make hell here for them,” as attempts are made to evacuate people through 10 humanitarian corridors across Ukraine.

Russia’s military forces have kept up their punishing campaign to capture Ukraine’s capital with fighting and artillery fire in Kyiv’s suburbs.

Ukrainian officials said Russian forces shelled several suburbs of the capital, on the 19th day of the invasion.

A new round of virtual talks are taking place between Russian and Ukrainian officials which has raised hopes that progress will be made in evacuating civilians from besieged Ukrainian cities and getting emergency supplies to areas without enough food, water and medicine.

“Everyone is waiting for news. We will definitely report in the evening,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a new video address.

Sky’s special correspondent Alex Crawford has been reporting from a nine-storey apartment building in a northern district of the city which was hit by artillery early on Monday morning, destroying apartments on several floors and starting a fire.

Special Correspondent Alex Crawford reports from Kyiv, where a residential block was hit by artillery overnight.

Firefighters could be seen helping people retrieve their belongings from the burnt out apartments with ladders and other equipment.

Later, reporting from the scene of an intercepted missile attack close to the city centre where a 59-year-old man was killed, Crawford spoke to local MP Alex Goncharenko who called for urgent air support for Ukraine.

“If we will not stop Putin, tomorrow it will be Warsaw, tomorrow it will be Riga. And I do not know what will be next,” he said.

He added that he believed the Russians would not take Kyiv, but may destroy it.

“If they will penetrate the city, we will make hell here for them,” Mr Goncharenko said. When Crawford suggested they could make hell for the Ukrainians, he answered: “It is already hell for us.”

Authorities have said they are stockpiling food for two weeks for the estimated two million people who are still in the city.

Elsewhere, Ukrainian authorities said two people died and seven were injured after Russian forces struck a plane factory in Kyiv, sparking a large fire.

The Antonov factory is Ukraine’s largest aircraft manufacturing plant and is best known for producing many of the world’s biggest cargo planes.

Shells also fell on the Kyiv suburbs of Irpin, Bucha and Hostomel, which have seen some of the worst fighting in Russia’s stalled attempt to take the capital, regional administration chief Oleksiy Kuleba said on Ukrainian television.

Mariupol ‘unblocked’, says Russia

The city of Mariupol has been unblocked and a mass evacuation of people has started, according to Russia’s defence ministry and local officials.

This was confirmed by Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister who said a convoy of 160 private cars was able to leave for the city of Zaporizhzhia.

However, Iryna Vereshchuk said Russian shelling was preventing the delivery of aid to the city.

Civilians have been trapped in the Black Sea port city for more than two weeks and are running out of supplies after being surrounded by Russian forces, the Ukrainian authorities say.

“It is known that as of 1300 (1100 GMT) more than 160 private cars managed to leave,” the city council said in an online post.

“There is also confirmation that a ceasefire is currently holding along the humanitarian corridor that has been established.”

Ukrainian officials have estimated that 2,500 people have been killed in Mariupol since the start of the war.

‘Ukraine is on fire’, says Ukrainian PM

In a televised address to the Council of Europe on Monday afternoon Denys Shmyhal said more than 12,000 Russian soldiers have died in Ukraine since the invasion started.

He accused Russia of having no values and of being terrorists.

Mr Shmyhal called for more support for Ukrainian forces to be able to fight, saying otherwise another world war will begin.

“Ukraine is on fire”, he said as he explained how hundreds of homes are without water, heat and light.

“We need to stop the aggression, until a nuclear disaster comes in, until all of Europe is on fire,” the PM said.

He echoed President Zelenskyy’s call for the skies over Ukraine to be closed to protect Ukrainian, European and global security.

President Zelenskyy warns of attack on NATO ‘homes’

It comes after an air strike on a military base 12 miles (20km) from the Polish border brought the war close to NATO’s doorstep.

Thirty-five people were killed and 134 injured in Sunday’s strike in Yavoriv, which has long been used by Western experts to train Ukrainian soldiers.

President Zelenskyy has said “it’s only a matter of time” before Russia missiles hit the homes of people in NATO countries if a no-fly zone is not set up.

It came after Russia said Western military aid convoys – which mostly come via Poland – are now considered legitimate targets.

“Nothing was happening there that could threaten the territory of the Russian Federation,” said President Zelenskyy about the base attack.

“And only 20 kilometres away are NATO borders. Last year, I made a clear warning to NATO leaders that if there were no tough preventive sanctions against Russia, it would start a war. We were right.”

Poland’s deputy foreign minister told Sky News the attack was “highly proactive” and that Russia knows very well where the border is.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid told Sky News’ Kay Burley any infringement of Russia into a NATO country “will be a war with NATO”.

“If there was an attack on any NATO country, even just a single toe cap of a Russian soldier steps into NATO territory, it will be a war with NATO and NATO would respond.

“There would be a significant response from NATO if there was any kind of attack from Russia, we’ve been very, very clear on that.”

Kremlin says US and EU provoking it to attack cities

On Monday, the Kremlin said at the very start of the invasion Russian President Vladimir Putin asked the defence ministry not to storm major population centres.

A spokesperson said the US and EU are trying to provoke Russia into attacking cities

Ukraine’s general prosecutor office said 90 children had been killed and more than 100 injured since the invasion began.

The EU’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said 2.6 million people have now fled Ukraine and predicted that up to five million people could become refugees.
