Ukraine cities face intense shelling as Russian convoy closes in on Kyiv

Facing fierce resistance on the ground, Moscow appeared to ramp up its assault from the air, which Ukraine and international watchdogs said was increasingly hitting civilians.

Ukraine’s embattled leader accused Russia of war crimes and “state terrorism” Tuesday after a fresh blast pounded the heart of the country’s second-largest city, fueling fears that civilians would bear the brunt of the intensifying assault.

Russia hit major cities across Ukraine with increasingly heavy shelling as the conflict escalated on its sixth day. Meanwhile, a vast convoy of Russian forces threatened the capital, Kyiv. Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs said Russian forces hit a television tower in the city Tuesday, killing five people.

In a video message, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy vowed to defend Kyiv and sought to rally both his country and the international community against what he called “outright, undisguised terror” from Moscow.

“No one will forgive. Nobody will forget,” he said.

In a tweet Tuesday, Zelenskyy, who is Jewish, invoked the barbarism of the Holocaust, highlighting that the TV tower is located beside Babi Yar, a Kyiv ravine where Nazi Germany committed atrocities during World War II.

“To the world: What is the point of saying ‘Never again’ for 80 years, if the world stays silent when a bomb drops on the same site of Babyn Yar? At least 5 killed,” Zelenskyy said. “History repeating…”

International condemnation and crippling sanctions have turned the Kremlin into a virtual pariah. Moscow now confronts a spiraling economy and determined resistance from Ukrainian forces.

U.S. officials said they feared Russian President Vladimir Putin, frustrated by his military’s struggles, may resort to even more brutal violence amid one of the most intense military conflicts in Europe since World War II.
