Not long ago, we reported that Kyiv’s mayor had told Associated Press that his city was “encircled” by Russian forces.
Now Vitali Klitschko is saying that is not the case, and it is in fact “disinformation”.
Writing on the Telegram messaging app, he said: “Russian internet publications spread information with reference to me that Kyiv is allegedly surrounded and evacuation of people is impossible.
“Do not believe lies! Trust information only from official sources”, he said.
As ever, the situation remains fluid.
A curfew remains in place in the capital, with many residents taking cover in basements and underground stations.
