According to U.S.-based Maxar Technologies, satellite images from Thursday show that a huge Russian military convoy was located northwest of Kyiv.

It is possible that the Russians could be resolute in their efforts to take down Ukraine’s capital. An earlier advance by the convoyHad stalled about 30 km outside Kyiv.

Satellite images from the most recent batch, which were all taken in March 2010, are now available. 10 show armored units fanned through towns near Antonov Airport on the outskirts Kyiv. Artillery howitzers are thought to have been located in nearby firing positions.

Maxar is a commercial satellite imaging company that works with U.S. government agencies. It said that images revealed the convoy “largely dispersed” and had been redeployed.

This comes at a time when Russia’s assault on Ukraine is entering its 16th year, with troops trying to keep pressure on Kyiv as well as the besieged port of Mariupol.

With Western and Ukrainian officials, international governments sought to sanction and isolate the Kremlin. admonishingThe “petrifying war crime” Wednesday’s airstrike against Mariupol’s maternity hospital was deemed a deadly act of aggression.

According to the firm, this image depicts resupply trucks as well as “probable multiple” rocket launchers running along Berestyanka Road in northwest Kyiv.

Dmytro Kuneba, Ukraine Foreign Minister, stated Wednesday that disconnection from electricity supplies of the Chornobyl Nuclear Plant was putting all Europe in peril.

International Atomic Energy Agency is the U.N. watchdog for nuclear safety. However, it has stated that disconnection does not pose a critical risk to safety, but has cautioned that recent developments have violated an important safety pillar on maintaining uninterrupted power supply.

On April 26, 1986, an explosion at the Chornobyl nuclear power plant caused the worst nuclear accident in history.
