    Kyiv has continued to be the subject of Russian missile attacks in recent weeks.

    In another overnight attack in the eastern Desnyanskyi and Dniprovskyi districts Wednesday, three people —including an 11-year-old girl — died, regional police said, according to the BBC.

    Experts believe Russia has ramped up its attacks ahead of a long-expected counter-offensive, which the Ukrainian government has been planning for months, the BBC reported.
