The U.S. military reckons that Russia has launched around 1,370 cruise and ballistic missiles at targets within Ukraine, a senior Pentagon official told ABC News on March 28.

As far as the Pentagon is aware, Russian troops near Kyiv are no longer advancing towards the city, but are instead firing at it with long-range artillery.

According to the Department of Defense, the invading forces are 15-20 kilometers away from Kyiv in the north-west, and some 55 kilometers away to the east.

The frontlines remain largely static, except for where Ukraine’s Armed Forces are pushing the Russians back from the capital, the official said.
