New satellite images show the 64km Russian convoy outside Kyiv has dispersed

Update : 11 Mar 2022, 11:58

Russia's huge army is moving towards Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine. Satellites have captured images of a convoy of Russian forces moving slowly towards the Ukrainian capital having dispersed and redeployed to nearby locations.

Satellite photos from the American company Maxar show that the length of the convoy reaching the outskirts of Kyiv is occupying much of a 40-mile (64-kilometer) stretch of road north of the Ukrainian capital. Earlier the length of the convoy was estimated at 17 miles which is 27 kms.

Recent satellite imagery from Maxar Technologies showed the long line of vehicles, tanks and artillery being dismantled and redeployed, with armored units seen in towns near Antonov airport north of Kiev.

Maxar located vehicles identified as resupply trucks and probable multiple rocket launchers that were moved to the firing position in Berestyanka, northwest of Kiev.

The 40 mile long convoy, reported by the US private company, shows that there will be plenty more fighting ahead. Maxar Technologies published the images and also said additional ground forces deployments and ground attack helicopter units were seen in southern Belarus, less than 20 miles north of the Ukraine border.

Russians have advanced more than 80 kilometres over the last five days on the north-eastern front and closing in on the Ukrainian capital. 

Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on March 10 that around 100,000 people had evacuated the country's cities in two days.
