Eighty-nine people, including four children, have been killed in Kyiv since Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24, the city council said in a statement on Wednesday.

A further 398 people have been wounded and 167 residential buildings damaged by Russian strikes, it said, warning residents to continue to follow air raid warnings despite a recent pull-back of Russian forces from the Kyiv region.

“It has become safer in Kyiv, but the threat of air strikes remains,” it said. Russia denies targeting civilians. (Reporting by Max Hunder, Writing by Alessandra Prentice, Editing by Timothy Heritage)
