Ukraine on Russia: President Zelensky vows to withstand Putin's invasion

Ukraine's president has warned that the Russians intend to take Kyiv overnight, urging his countrymen to resist the expected onslaught as Western officials say the city appears surrounded. Volodymyr Zelensky, addressing the nation from a secret location in the capital, had a dire warning for his embattled and defiant people on Friday night. 'Russia will try to break our resistance with all its might,' he said, in a video posted to social media. 'Tonight the enemy will begin storming us. We need to withstand them!' Zelensky said that Chernihiv, Symy, Kharkiv, Donbas, and the south could also come under attack. Vitali Klitschko, the former world champion heavyweight boxer who is now the mayor of Kyiv, said his city faces a 'difficult night'. The British Ministry of Defence said they believe Kyiv, home to 1.4 million people, is close to being encircled as the Russians advance from all sides.
