Russian troops are bearing down on Ukraine’s capital Kyiv.

Mayor Vitaly Klitschko says five explosions hit an area near a major power plant on the city’s eastern outskirts. There was no information on the cause of the blasts, which Klitschko said occurred at intervals of several minutes. No electricity outages were immediately reported.

The invasion of a democratic country has fueled fears of a wider war in Europe and triggered worldwide efforts to make Russia stop.
