Nearly every major city in Ukraine has been rocked by Russian airstrikes and Russia has laid siege to the capital, Kyiv. At the time, President Volodymyr Zelensky said his country had "reached a strategic turning point" in its war with Russia.

This information has been informed in a report of Al Jazeera on Saturday.

"It is impossible to say how long it will take to liberate our motherland," Zelensky said in a video message from the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv. But it is possible to say that we will do it.

"We are already moving towards our goal," he added.

On the 17th day of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Russian forces were advancing on Kyiv from the northeast of the country.

A report by CNN, the BBC, and Reuters today states that a large contingent of Russian troops has split into several factions and surrounded Kyiv. Besides, they are also carrying out attacks.

Images from the U.S. satellite company Maxar Technologies show fires in several places northwest of Kyiv. Images of fire at Antonov airport in Hostel, Ukraine.

In another satellite image, Maxer reports that we have seen houses burning in Moschun, northwest of Kyiv.

The satellite company claims that the image also shows the extent of the damage across the city, northwest of the capital.

Armored vehicles, tanks, and artillery were spotted by Russian troops west and south of Kyiv. Russian troops have been spotted near the town of Rubianca, north of Kyiv. A convoy of Russian troops was seen advancing towards the capital from the northeast.

The United States will not be directly involved in the war with Russia. US President Joe Biden has made it clear today that we will not take direct military action against Russia in Ukraine.

However, the country continues to raise the bar of 'sanctions' against Russia.

Dmitry Rogozin, head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, has called for sanctions to be lifted in the wake of a series of sanctions, saying Western sanctions against Russia could lead to the collapse of the International Space Station.

According to Rogozin, the ban could disrupt the activities of Russian ships serving the International Space Station. This could affect the Russian part of the space station, which is helping to correct the orbit of the space station. In that case, a structure weighing 500 tons will fall to the ground and 'fall into the sea or land'.
