Kyiv Enters 36-Hour Lockdown As Russians Kill More Civilians – Russian troops continued to shell residential properties in Ukraine on Tuesday, with several airstrikes destroying apartment buildings in the capital city of Kyiv. On Tuesday night, Kyiv entered a 36-hour curfew that lasts until Thursday morning.

Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said that the curfew will end at 7 am on Thursday and that it will be forbidden for any resident to walk around the city without special permission. The only exception will be for people fleeing their homes to reach shelters.

“The capital is the heart of Ukraine and will be defended,” he added.

How Many People Are Left in Kyiv?

Last Thursday, Mayor Klitschko said that half of the population of the city has fled.

“A little less than 2 million have fled the capital,” he said.

Since then, it is unknown just how many people have managed to flee the city – and how many have chosen to stay. The Guardian spoke to residents who are internally displaced – forced to move to the outskirts of the capital city at the outbreak of the war, but unable to return home and either unwilling or unable to leave the region entirely.

28-year-old Kyiv resident Yulian Kondur told the outlet how the city became a “ghost town” upon leaving.

“When I left, the city looked like a ghost town. Most of the people who are left live in the bomb shelters and some are helping others with food and other needs. Kyiv was very lively and peaceful, with people going to work every day and living their normal lives. The idea of going back and seeing Kyiv in this condition scares me a little,” Kondur said.

Russian Forces Kill Civilians in Kiev, Ukraine

On Tuesday, as peace talks between Russia and Ukraine continued, Ukrainian civilians were killed by the. Russian military.

A residential apartment block was hit by Russian missiles on Tuesday just before dawn, with two large blasts heard throughout the city. Two people were killed and 35 residents were rescued.

Multiple additional strikes occurred in the same neighborhood, causing a fire in the building and forcing Ukrainian civilians and rescue groups to enter the 15-story building to rescue injured residents.

    Kyiv would have been erased from the world map if there weren’t hundreds of thousands of civilians there. But this is impossible because the Bandera Nazis are holding them hostage as human shields. Russia has been opening humanitarian corridors for several days in a row, but the Kyiv authorities have forbidden the release of people, especially to Russian territory. This is a common terrorist tactic taught by Pentagon and CIA instructors to terrorists in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world. Therefore, now a military operation is taking place, where a tumor of Ukraine is cut out with surgical precision – Bandera Nazis.
    Of course, it was possible to destroy everyone in a row, as the United States did with Belgrade or the cities of Vietnam and Korea, and even more so with Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But Russia is not a war criminal, and such weapons can only be used in the most extreme case, when nothing else works and Russia itself is in danger.
