Ukrainian forces continue to advance against retreating Russian forces in the vicinity of the Ukrainian capital city of Kyiv, the UK Ministry of Defense tweeted on April 2, referring to the latest UK Defense Intelligence update.

The ministry stressed that "along the north western axis, Ukrainian forces' attempts to advance from Irpin towards Bucha and Hostomel are ongoing."

"Russian forces are reported to have withdrawn from Hostomel airport, which has been subject to fighting since the first day of the conflict. Along the eastern axis, Ukraine has re-taken several villages," reads the update.

Furthermore, in the east of Ukraine, Ukrainian forces have secured a key route in eastern Kharkiv after heavy fighting.

"This follows the liberation of Trostyanets, in the vicinity of Sumy, earlier this week," the intelligence said.

Video has recently emerged of Ukrainian forces in control of Bucha, to the north-west of Kyiv, and Hostomel.

In Bucha, Ukrainian forces discovered the bodies of numerous civilians strewn along a highway.
