Reports are coming of dogged resistance to the invading Russian forces in Kyiv which had led to the prolonged siege of the capital city.

It is not yet clear how much of Kyiv has been taken over by the Russian forces, but reports of skirmishes in various parts of the city suggest that small Russian units are probing the Ukrainian defenses to clear a path for the main forces.

Meanwhile, Russia is apparently ready to send a delegation for talks after Ukraine’s invite.

Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky had earlier pleaded to Russia for talks.

Meanwhile, Ukraine has claimed that over 1000 Russian soldiers have been killed in the conflict so far.

Earlier, reports had come in that Russia would be ready for talks once Ukraine’s army stops fighting. According to news agency Reuters, Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov had confirmed this.
