“Now, somewhere very close to canonada… In the reception – wounded…
“Meanwhile, in the basement of the maternity ward, in conditions, far from those who deserve a new life – the voice of the newborn…It’s a boy!”
The newborns have come into this life as Putin unleashed a deadly special forces kill squad known as the “hunters” while he launches another desperate bid to take over Ukraine.
Each soldier has reportedly been given a “deck of cards” with photos of senior Ukrainian officials and security officers on them that Moscow wants dead. The Kremlin claims everyone on the deck has committed “crimes.”
Meanwhile, pictures and video from Kyiv show burning vehicles, buildings hit in apparent shell attacks, and smoke and flames rising over the night sky.
A video shared on Twitter purports to show a blazing vehicle on Kyiv’s Peremohy (Victory) Avenue, the second-longest road in the city following a reported shelling, although it is unclear whether the vehicle is Ukrainian or Russian, military or civilian.
Ukraine’s government claims Russian troops fought against their forces near Beresteiska metro station, just five miles from Maidan (Independence) Square, the central point of Kyiv.
Russian troops also attacked an army base in the city but were successfully repelled, Ukraine’s military claimed in a Facebook post early on Saturday.
Separately, the Interfax Ukraine agency said Russian soldiers were trying to capture one of Kyiv’s electricity generating stations.
Loud artillery blasts were heard coming from close to the city center, while a reporter for the Kyiv Independent claimed “extremely hard combat” was underway near Kyiv Zoo.
The Washington Post’s correspondent in the city reported “dozens and dozens” of explosions in the city.
Google Maps is showing a number of major roads in and out of the city have been closed, including around Maidan Square, and major thoroughfares leading to and from the city’s airports.
