Its almost 6:50 in Kyiv.
There's a live stream of maiden square from Reuters and another from a nearby church from Fox i think?
Not sure if anyone else knows of any others. There was an earthcam one but that went down a few hours ago.

In the leadup to this invasion, the most striking detail to me, aside from all the OSINT plus other US IC saying "uh, they are not leaving, they are prepping even more," was Macron. Macron's office put out or leaked or whatever that Macron had met with Putin various times in the past and even when at odds it kind of made sense. Macron's take this past week was that Putin's mind just seemed cloudy or off and not laser focused the way he used to be. That may also be what has a lot of Russian senior folks also kind of surprised.

I was just going to post the same: https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/chernobyl-power-plant-captured-by-russian-forces-ukrainian-official-2022-02-24/

Someone educate me, I was under the assumption that the plant, while partially functional, shouldn't be seeing active "fighting" due to all the spicy air about. Other than being able to turn off the lights in some areas, what is the importance of this plant strategically?

Everything so far seems like Putin wants all of Ukraine, not just those two regions.
