Zelenskiy says Ukraine still in control of Kyiv

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Saturday (February 26) that the capital Kyiv was still under Ukrainian control after Russia launched an invasion on Thursday (February 24).

“We have withstood and are successfully repelling enemy attacks. The fighting goes on,” he said in a video message posted on his social media.

“We already have almost full support from EU countries for disconnecting Russia from SWIFT. I hope that Germany and Hungary will have the courage to support this decision. We have the courage to defend our homeland, to defend Europe,” Zelenskiy added.

Britain said the bulk of Russian forces were now 30 km (19 miles) from the center of Kyiv and said Russia had yet to gain control of Ukraine’s airspace.
