International desk
The city administration has imposed a 36-hour curfew in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv. The curfew was imposed following a series of Russian airstrikes targeting various residential areas in Kyiv from Monday night until the next morning. Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko made the announcement on Tuesday.

"Tuesday can be a difficult day for the people of Kyiv," said Mayor Vitali. The bomber struck shortly afternoon in front of a Metro station and Dnipro airport. At least four people were killed in the attacks, the city's mayor said.

Various international media outlets, including the BBC, CNN, and Al Jazeera, say Russian attacks in and around Kyiv have increased since last Monday night. At dawn yesterday, Russian planes bombed a residential area of ​​Kyiv. A statement from the Ukrainian military said that the bombing was accompanied by "shelling". The situation is dire in the Sivatosinsky district of West Kyiv and the neighboring city of Irpin. In addition, Russian troops have carried out overnight raids on nearby Hastamel and Bucha.

The Ukrainian port city of Mariupol was the victim of a humanitarian catastrophe in the attack. The ruins of the building are now scattered throughout the once-decorated city. In the past week, more than 2,500 people have been killed in Russian airstrikes in the city. Mass graves have been dug in different areas of the city as so many bodies could not be buried during the war. But yesterday some people were able to leave Mariopole.

At least 160 private vehicles left the city through the humanitarian corridor on Monday, city authorities said. Two thousand vehicles are still waiting to leave Mariupol. Another city in the country, Kharkiv, was also devastated by the attack. Rows of mass graves have also been seen there. The head of the city's regional administration, Oleh Sainihubov, said Russian planes had attacked Kharkiv at least 75 times on Monday night. In addition, at least 600 buildings in the city have been completely destroyed in the last few days.

Although the devastation and loss of life that is going on in Ukraine, there is no impression in the words of the country's President Volodymyr Zelensky. He has expressed his views in favor of counter-attack and counter-attack. In a video message yesterday, Zelensky warned Russian troops to surrender. "I am giving you a chance on behalf of the people of Ukraine," he said. That is the chance to survive. If you surrender to our forces, we will treat you as you would treat people.

The prime minister of Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovenia are heading to Kyiv amid the onslaught. According to the BBC, the three prime ministers will meet with President Volodymyr Zelensky during his visit to Ukraine. They will visit the country to ensure the European Union's unequivocal support for Ukraine's sovereignty and independence.

Meanwhile, the European Union has imposed a fourth round of sanctions against Russia. The new decision bans the export of luxury goods and the import of steel products to Russia. The United States has also imposed sanctions on 11 Russian security officials. Among the banned military officials are Viktor Zalotov, head of the Russian National Guard, Dmitry Shugayev, head of the Federal Service's Department of Engineering Cooperation, and Alexander Mikhayev, CEO of Rosoboronexport. Russia's eight deputy defense ministers are also under sanctions.
