Russian troops on Friday reached the outskirts of Kyiv as Ukrainian forces fought back against Russia’s military offensive, according to multiple reports.

The Ukrainian Defense Ministry said that Russian troops had invaded the Obolon district, which is a suburb of the capital city.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky warned Ukrainians during a televised public address that the capital of nearly 3 million people would be Russia’s “target number one.”

The city was bombarded early Friday as missile strikes hit numerous targets and a rocket struck a residential building in Russia’s second day of movement toward Kyiv in its military offensive, The New York Times noted.
