Heavy fighting to the north-west of Kyiv continues: UK

Heavy fighting to the north-west of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv has continued Friday, that has highly likely included renewed fighting around Hostomel Airfield, Britain said in an intelligence update on Friday.

“This is near the front end of the Russian column on the outskirts of the city. The column has made little discernible progress in over four days,” it said.

Earlier, a US defense official said that Ukraine still has a “significant majority” of its military aircraft available nine days after Russian forces started their invasion of the country.

Vastly outmatched by Russia’s military, in terms of raw numbers and firepower, the fact that Ukraine’s own air force is still flying and its air defenses are still deemed to be viable has surprised military experts.
