A privileged information from a senior official of the United States of America Defense indicated that the long line of Russia military column of troops, tanks and other vehicles captured by a satellite camera days ago have been stopped by shortage of food and fuel.
The senior U.S. defense official said the immense column of hundreds of tanks and other vehicles appeared to be stalled roughly 25 kilometers (16 miles) from Kyiv and had made no real progress in the last couple of days.
Two Russian soldiers were video recorded to have been arrested by the Ukraine Police officers in Shevchenkove, Kharkiv oblast, when they came to a local Ukraine police station to request for fuel as their vehicle ran out of gas.
On the far edges of Kyiv, it was gathered that volunteers mostly in their 60s manned a checkpoint to try to block the Russian advance.
Military Times quoting Ukrainian Head of Military Intelligent Agency also reported that Ukraine armed forces have been striking the long line of the Russian troops heading to Kyiv while the Russians have used thermobaric weapons against Ukrainian cities.
“We are striking the enemy’s columns,” Brig. Gen. Kyrylo Budanov told Military Times in an exclusive interview Wednesday morning. “We burn many columns of the enemy.”
The strikes, he said, are being conducted by Ukraine Su-24 and Su-25 fighter jets, artillery and missile barrages.
“My intelligence officers and agents are directing and calling the strikes,” he said
