            As Russian forces continued to bombard the Ukrainian city, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko announced a 36-hour curfew until March 17. According to the new directive, the curfew in Kyiv will be in effect from 8 p.m. on March 15 to 7 a.m. on March 17. “Residents will only be permitted to go outdoors to go to bomb shelters”, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said, according to The Kyiv Independent.

Mayor Vitali Klitschko announced the move after multiple residential buildings were attacked by Russian military stationed outside the city. According to him, two persons were slain in the most recent carnage.

‘The capital is Ukraine’s heart, and it will be protected’. A series of Russian missiles targeted a residential area in the city, sparking a massive conflagration. An explosion also destroyed the entrance to a downtown subway station intended as a bomb shelter. Fighting has erupted on the outskirts of Kyiv, and occasional air raid sirens can be heard all around the city. Mariupol, the ringed port city, has a rare ray of optimism.
