UPDATE – Russia's War in Ukraine: Curfew in Kiev

+++ Follow the current developments about Russia's invasion of Ukraine below in the ticker +++

A curfew is in effect in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev until Monday morning. Anyone who remains outside could be mistaken for a saboteur. There had been attacks especially on Saturday morning. A high-rise building was hit that had not been completely evacuated.

Overall, however, the Russian troops are apparently encountering more resistance than planned. Videos are being shared on social media in which Russian tanks are unable to continue due to a lack of fuel. Photographs of arrested soldiers are also making the rounds.

In Russia, access to the Internet – especially on Facebook – has been restricted.

The Ukrainian health minister posted on Facebook that 198 civilians had been killed and around 1,000 injured since the invasion of Russia on February 24, 2022.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke out several times via selfie video and in press conferences and again appealed in Russian to the Russian population to take a stand against the war.

A power plant in the north-east of Kiev was apparently still contested. The Ukrainian army said it repelled a Russian attack there.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has announced that Russian troops have captured the city of Melitopol near Mariupol. Independent journalists reported on fighting in the region.

Putin calls on the Ukrainian army to stage a coup

In a speech, Russian President Vladimir Putin called on the Ukrainian army to take power. It is much easier for the Kremlin to negotiate with the military than with the current government made up of "drug addicts and neo-Nazis," Putin said.

Observers assume that the Kremlin in Kiev wanted to overthrow the president and set up a puppet government.
