Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Friday that invading Russian forces are targeting civilian areas, praising his countrymen for their "heroism" and assuring Kyiv is doing "everything possible" to protect them.

He spoke as Moscow's forces reached the capital, with explosions heard in the city that the government described as "horrific rocket strikes."

"They say that civilian objects are not a target for them. But this is another lie of theirs. In reality, they do not distinguish between areas in which they operate," Zelensky said in a video.

"Ukrainian air defence systems are defending our skies," he said. "Ukrainians are demonstrating heroism". "All our forces are doing everything possible" to protect people, he added.
