Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Kyiv mayor: ‘We well fight to the death to protect our streets'” – below is their description.
In the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, soldiers and volunteers have built hundreds of checkpoints to protect the city of nearly 4 million, often using sandbags, stacked tires and spiked cables.
Russia does have a significant air force capable of causing serious harm over large areas. But still functioning Ukrainian Air Defence, a surprise to many, continues to contain it.
Kyiv’s Mayor Vitali Klitschko ahave revealed that he is ‘ready to die’ for Ukraine as he defend it against the Russian invasion.
Vitali has also applauded the ‘amazing’ and ‘huge patriotic movement’ from Ukrainians who have stayed to fight the Russians, with ‘old people, doctors and actors’ all taking up arms to create a makeshift army.
Ukraine called the escape routes that lead to Russia or Belarus completely immoral.
