Ukrainian soldiers have started taking up positions around Kyiv after Russian troops were seen in northern suburbs and gunfire was heard near government buildings.

The Russian forces who have reportedly entered the city are believed to be centred around the northern district of Obolon, a heavily residential area just 9km north of Kyiv’s parliament and city centre.

Ukrainian officials have told civilians in the capital to prepare Molotov cocktails to fight back. City residents were also urged to proceed to shelters due to an air raid alarm.
