Kyiv – a city under siege

Ukrainian journalist in Kyiv speaks out as Russian troops move in on capital

As the Russian army advances on Kyiv and threatens to topple the Ukrainian government, Ukrainian officials have banned men ages 18 to 60 from leaving the country to potentially be drafted into defence forces and have directed residents who have not fled the country to use Molotov cocktails against the approaching Russian troops.

Democracy Now! gets an update from Ukrainian journalist Nataliya Gumenyuk in Kyiv, who says Ukrainians are showing great resilience against a much greater force invading their country. “The Ukrainian army is really deterring this mighty force on its own,” she says.
