Ukrainian forces destroy Russian column at the edge of Kyiv

CNN has geolocated video showing the destruction by Ukrainian forces of a column of Russian armored personnel carriers and other vehicles on the edge of the capital, Kyiv. 

One video shot Sunday morning shows the Russian column moving at speed through a residential neighborhood (Bucha) on the western outskirts of the city.

A short time later, the Russian group is geolocated close by, but most of the vehicles are wrecked and some of them are turned on their sides. There is no sign of the Russian soldiers.

Over one video, a man is heard swearing in Ukrainian and then saying “They came to our land. I wish you all to burn in Hell.”

“I would give my life if needed.”

The man says the Ukrainian Air Force “did its job well,” but it’s unclear how the attack against the convoy was conducted.

Canada’s airspace is closed to all Russian aircraft operators effective immediately, according to the Canadian Minister of Transport, Omar Alghabra.

“Effective immediately, Canada’s airspace is closed to all Russian aircraft operators. We will hold Russia accountable for its unprovoked attacks against Ukraine,” Alghabra said on Sunday morning.

Canada joins a number European countries, including Germany, Italy and France, that have announced they will close its airspace to Russian aircrafts and airlines in response to the invasion of Ukraine.
