More than 2,500 people killed in Ukraine since Russia began attack — Officials

Two people were killed in the attack as various neighborhoods of the Ukraine capital Kyiv came under shelling and missile attacks, city officials said according to VOA.

Ukrainian officials say Russian troops fired artillery on suburbs of the capital, Kyiv, Monday, as Russian and Ukrainian delegations held a fourth round of talks without signs of a breakthrough.

The talks, which are taking place by video link rather than in neighboring Belarus as in the past, paused for the day, but are set to resume Tuesday.

Ukrainian negotiator Mykhailo Podolyak tweeted after the talks, “Communication is being held yet it’s hard.” He had raised hope of progress Sunday by saying that Russia had been “listening carefully to our proposals” and was beginning to talk “constructively.”

Officials in Kyiv say at least one person was killed when a shell hit a nine-story residential building in a northern district of the city early Monday. They say Russian forces also struck an airplane factory in the capital, sparking a large fire.

The violence comes a day after Russia launched a lethal cruise missile attack on a western Ukraine military base just 25 kilometers from NATO-member Poland. At least 35 people were killed and 134 wounded in the attack on the International Center for Peacekeeping and Security.
