Russia torches Ukraine as negotiations continue

Russian forces continued their bombardment of Ukrainian cities early Tuesday ahead of another scheduled round of diplomatic talks between the two sides.

Large explosions before dawn on Tuesday thundered over Kyiv. Houses and residential buildings in the capital were damaged and set on fire in the final attack round.

A US official had said The Associated Press that Russian troops are still about 9 miles from the center of Kiev.

A day earlier, the Ukrainian authorities announced two people were killed when the Russians attacked an aircraft factory in Kyiv.

The Antonov Factory is Ukraine’s largest aircraft factory and produces many of the world’s largest cargo aircraft.

Russian artillery fire also hit a nine-story apartment building in Kiev’s northern Obolonskyi district on Monday, killing two others, authorities said.

Also on Monday, both sides negotiated for several hours without a breakthrough, but some optimism was expressed.

Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to Zelenskyy, tweeted that negotiators planned to meet again on Tuesday to discuss “peace, ceasefire, immediate troop withdrawal and security guarantees.”

The United Nations has recorded at least 596 civilian deaths since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, although it believes the true number is much higher. Millions more have fled their homes.
