Paratroopers storm military hospital overnight as Russian forces close in on Kyiv

Russian paratroopers stormed a military hospital in Kharkiv overnight – as forces close in on the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv.

Fighting was ongoing overnight in Kharkiv and Kherson, while a long convoy of Russian military vehicles is now about 20 miles northwest of the capital, Kyiv.

In Kharkiv, Russian paratroopers launched an airborne assault on a military hospital in the early hours of Wednesday and it is understood that fighting was still underway at 4am GMT.

Kharkiv Region Police Chief Volodymyr Tymoshko said no Ukrainian troops were killed in the gunfight.


He said: “Currently the situation near the hospital is under control, security has been strengthened.

Meanwhile, at least 10 people were killed and 35 injured in rocket strikes on the centre of Kharkiv, Ukrainian Interior Ministry adviser Anton Herashchenko said.

Similar strikes that killed and wounded dozens in Ukraine’s capital in previous days involved cluster bombs, experts said.

Russia’s defence ministry urged Kyiv residents to flee the capital, saying it would strike unspecified areas used by Ukraine’s security services and communications.

A long convoy of Russian armoured vehicles is understood to be within 20 miles of Kyiv, as an attack on the Ukrainian capital looks imminent.

Yesterday, five were killed in an attack on the Kyiv TV tower.
