Russian troops capture Antonov airport outside Kyiv

Russia troops have overtaken the Antonov international airport just outside of Kyiv, a CNN reporter on the ground confirms.

Antonov is a cargo airport.

Meanwhile, Russia’s Defense Ministry says the country’s military has destroyed 74 Ukrainian military facilities, including 11 air bases.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu orders that Ukrainian servicemen be treated “with respect” and those who lay down their weapons be offered safe corridors.

The Russian Defense Ministry also confirms the loss of a Su-25 attack jet due to “pilot error.”
