The mayor of kyiv, Vitali Klitschko, said in an interview with Le Monde:

“The city is ready to defend itself. People are ready. There is anger, rage, and there will be no panic (…). When we see what is happening elsewhere, like in Mariupol, the scenario of a Russian desire for the total destruction of kyiv is not excluded. »
