Ukraine asks for fighters of all ages, reports city lost, but successes elsewhere

The Ukrainian defense ministry is calling on any citizen willing to fight to do so, regardless of age.

In a Facebook post, it says the city of Konotop, east of Kyiv, has fallen but reports success in pushing back or bogging down Russian forces in other areas.

It claims the Gostomel airfield has been too badly damaged to be used by Russian troops, forcing them to approach Kiev from Belarus.

CNN reports that Ukrainian forces also saw success in a battle for control of a river crossing near Kherson.
