    According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the “special military operation,” which began on February 24, aims to disarm Ukraine and root out dangerous nationalists.

    Digital Desk: At least eight people were killed after Russian bombs destroyed a shopping center in Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, local official reports said.  According to Ukraine’s State Emergency Service, the Retroville shopping mall and parked cars in an adjoining lot caught fire due to Russian shelling in the Podilskyi district on late Sunday. According to CNN reports, 63 firefighters were dispatched to extinguish the fire, which had reached the third and fourth floors of the shopping centre. According to Reuters, city mayor Vitali Klitschko said on his Telegram channel, “According to the information we have at the moment, several homes and one of the shopping centres were hit by the Russian bombs.” Notably, in recent days, Russians have been consistently carrying out attacks on Kyiv, trying to surround the capital. On Monday, British intelligence reported that Russian forces are advancing from the northeast on Kyiv, which remains under Ukrainian control nearly a month into the invasion. According to the report, Ukrainian resistance has kept the majority of Russian forces more than 25 kilometers away from the city center, but Kyiv remains the war’s “primary military objective.” Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has killed thousands of people, displaced over 3 million people, and raised fears of a larger conflict between Russia and the US. According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the “special military operation,” which began on February 24, aims to disarm Ukraine and root out dangerous nationalists. Despite the fact that Russian troops show no signs of stepping back, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has expressed willingness to compromise with Vladimir Putin. However, Zelensky added that if the talks fail, it could lead to a much larger global conflict.
