Ukrainian Forces Retake Makariv, a Key Suburb of Kyiv

Summary from the AllSides News Team

On Tuesday, Ukraine reported that their forces retook Makariv, a town near Kyiv, as the battle continues for control over the capital city. 

Ukraine's control over the town effectively blocks Russia from entering Kyiv from the northwest. The capital remains a primary objective for Russian President Vladimir Putin, but despite the pounding of the city with artillery and air strikes, Russian forces have been unable to advance into Kyiv by ground.  Meanwhile, residents are sheltering at home or underground as part of the 35-hour curfew that extends until Wednesday morning, while Russian forces press their attack on the southern port of Mariupol.
