The Spetsnaz unit which, as revealed yesterday, is outside the Presidential Palace of Ukraine, launched the final attack, reinforced with Russian tanks, which it was waiting for after the Presidential Guard refused to surrender.

It is unknown whether the Ukrainian President, V. Zelensky, is inside the Presidential Palace, but it is only a matter of hours before the administrative centre of Ukraine is occupied.

Gunshots can be heard in the centre of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, as Russian soldiers search for Volodymyr Zelensky to arrest him.

Reports indicate that the shooting occurred outside government buildings, specifically in Liberty Square. According to a tweet by war correspondent Nolan Peterson, Russian troops have already entered the city.
