Russia says it blocked Kiev from west

Russian Defense Ministry Spokesperson Igor Konashenkov (pictured) stated on Friday that his country has blocked Ukraine's capital Kiev from the western side.

Konashenkov also said Russia's armed forces captured Antonov Airport, also known as Hostomel or Gostomel. He added that more than 200 members of Ukraine's special units were killed in that combat.

"I appeal to Ukrainian citizens. Your nationalist leadership is using the same methods as the terrorists. They want to use you as a human shield. The Russian armed forces will not inflict any strikes on residential areas of the Ukrainian capital," he said in a statement.
