Ukraine: 65-km-long Russian convoy nears Kyiv. Shelling in the area has intensified.
A convoy of Russian forces has been seen stretching a staggering 65 kilometres. The convoy was made up of tanks, support vehicles, artillery and armoured vehicles according to Euronews.
On Tuesday morning, March 1, the convoy was said to be around 25 kilometres from the centre of Kiev. According to satellite data supplied by Maxar Technologies, the convoy was 65 kilometres long.
Photos from the organisation also showed ground forces and ground attack helicopters in Belarus.
On Monday, peace talks were being held but no details are yet known. According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the shelling of Ukraine by Russia had intensified. He believed that the timing was not coincidental.
Zelenskyy commented: “The talks were taking place against the backdrop of bombing and shelling of our territory, our cities. Synchronizing of the shelling with the negotiating process was obvious. I believe Russia is trying to put pressure (on Ukraine) with this simple method.”
The Ukrainian president has said that no concessions will be made “when one side is hitting each other with rocket artillery.”
