Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko briefs on the current situation in Kyiv 

The Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko continues to provide information on the situation in Kyiv.

Klitschko: Dear friends! Dear Kyivans!

Kyiv faced a new enemy’s attack. Early in the morning missiles hit two residential buildings in Svyatoshynsky district, one apartment building in Podil and a private home in the Osokorki neighbourhood. A facade of a metro station was also damaged by a shock wave. Rescuers still work at the sites. Reportedly two civilians are killed from the attack. 30 people were evacuated.

Since the situation in Kyiv remains very tough and dangerous the military administration imposes a curfew starting at 8 p.m. today until 7 a.m. March 17. The movement of individuals unless they have an essential authorisation will remain strictly prohibited. Should there be air raids, residents would be allowed to go to bomb shelters.

I request everyone to get prepared to shelter at home or in a place of refuge.
