The Mayor of Kyiv has slapped down Vladimir Putin’s claims that Russia is only targeting military targets in the Ukrainian capital city. Vitale Klitschko, a former professional boxer, was questioned on the Kremlin’s claims while visiting the devastation caused by Russian bombings with Australian journalist Chris Reason. 

The 7News Sydney reporter told Mr Klitschko: “Putin says he is only targeting military targets.”

Mr Klitschko erupted in response: “Bullshit, sorry!”

Pointing to a bombed-out block of flat, the Mayor of Kyiv added: “Where is the military target?

“This building is a military target.”

Ukraine’s armed forces have launched counteroffensives against Russian forces “in several operational areas,” Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

“This radically changes the parties’ dispositions,” he added, without giving details.

In an update on the war, the general staff of Ukraine’s armed forces referred to the “high intensity of hostilities” but did not say where fighting was heaviest.

Ukrainian officials also made clear that the death toll was rising from the war that began when Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24.

Mr Osadchuk told LBC: “I want everyone to understand that Russians totally failed with this strategy to take Ukraine during three or four days.

“Now they suffering due to huge losses they already have in Ukraine, as in manpower, as in 1000s of automotive vehicles.

“We burned them more than 400 tanks. They lost 90 attacking helicopters and so on so forth but now they act like mad dogs.”
