Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko addressed the city's residents and urged them not to walk or drive along the streets.

"Friends! Dear Kyivans! The enemy has attacked the capital! And there are already casualties among the civilian population. As a result of two rockets hitting the TV tower, according to preliminary data, five civilians died. They were walking along the sidewalk past the tower. I urge all Kyivites not to walk or ride the streets! Be extremely careful. It is better to spend this night in shelters," Klitschko said in his video address.

He said that now specialists are working to restore the entire operation of the TV tower. So far, he said, digital broadcasting has been partially restored.

There are cable, satellite and online TV channels available.

"Let's unite to defend our city The Armed Forces of Ukraine, the police of the capital, other law enforcement agencies and territorial defence units are defending Kyiv! Keep the endurance because the enemy wants to intimidate and demoralize us! It will not happen! We will fight! And we will win! Glory to Ukraine!" the mayor said.

We remind that the Russian army continues to attempt to break into Kyiv. Today, the Russian occupiers aimed at the TV tower in the capital, so some TV channels are down. The attack on the TV tower killed five people who were pedestrians.

There is also information that Russian troops are preparing an airstrike on St. Sophia Cathedral.
