Kyiv may fall to Russian forces in a matter of hours as Ukraine’s air defenses have been effectively eliminated, according to a senior Western intelligence official. 

Russian troops are advancing toward Ukraine down both sides of the Dnieper river and look set to take the capital, the official said. The Russian military also controls several airfields it can use to funnel more forces into the country.
