Satellite images show 40-mile-long Russian military convoy north of Kyiv alongside burning buildings

Conflicts A- A A+
New satellite images provided by Maxar Technologies show a 40-mile-long Russian military convoy north of Kyiv as well as houses and buildings burning along the road.
 
The high-resolution pictures, taken by Maxar, show the convoy on the outskirts of Kyiv at its nearest point.
 
According to Maxar, the convoy currently covers from Antonov airbase, which is 17-miles north from Kyiv's city center, to the northern outskirts of Pribyrsk, Ukraine. On Sunday, Maxar analyzed that the convoy was close to 3.5 miles long.
 
The vehicles in the convoy included tanks, armored trucks, and other Russian military-grade vehicles, according to CNN.
 
In the recent satellite images, some showed smoke and fire rising from buildings near Ivankiv, Ukraine — but it was not immediately clear what the damage was caused by.
 
On February 24, after Russia had amassed more than 150,000 troops around Ukraine's border over the weeks prior, Russian forces attacked Ukraine by air and have continued a sustained ground assault across the country, with fighting nearing Kyiv in the past days.
 
Russia and Ukraine's leadership met for negotiations in Belarus on Monday but did not come to any immediate resolutions.
 
Accurate civilian death tolls have been difficult to confirm, and according to the Associated Press, on Monday, the UN claimed that 64 people had died and that 240 were wounded after the first week of fighting.
