Russia has intensified nightly airstrikes over the past week ahead of a renewed Ukrainian counter-offensive.

Air raid sirens have been heard in the capital Kyiv and two-thirds of Ukraine as more than a week of renewed Russian air strikes continue.

Ukrainian emergency services issued air raid alerts early Tuesday for Kyiv and most of central and eastern Ukraine, stretching from Vynnitsya in the west to all eastern regions and south to Kherson and the Odessa region on the Black Sea, reported the Reuters news agency.

At least four people were killed in drone and missile attacks in the early hours of Monday morning.

Kiev is preparing for a new counter-offensive to recapture the Russian-occupied country, which continues to fight for the devastated eastern city of Bakhmut.

At least 8,791 civilians have been killed since Russia invaded Ukraine in February last year, according to the United Nations. Thousands more were injured and millions were driven from their homes.
