The Russian invasion of Ukraine is continuing.


Ukraine has accused the Russian military of targeting civilian and military sites. Ukraine government spokesperson Vadym Denysenko said that 33 civilian sites had been hit in the previous 24 hours.


Russian forces have entered the district of Obolon, Kyiv, and were approximately nine kilometres from the Ukrainian Parliament.


All Ukrainian civilians are now eligible to volunteer for military service regardless of their age.


The United Nations estimates that at least 100,000 people have likely been displaced by the violence. People are fleeing the country and people went into the subway system and in shelters.


Russia has launched at least 200 missiles into Ukraine since the start of the conflict.


There is still the possibility of talks between Ukraine and Russia. President Zelenskyy has indicated that the Ukrainian government is not "afraid to talk about neutral status." President Putin has also alluded that he is willing to conduct high-level negotiations with Ukraine.
