It is now just past 8am in Kyiv, and residents of the Ukrainian capital are now free to leave the underground shelters they have been staying in, as a weekend-long curfew is lifted.
Grocery stores will be allowed to open and public transport will start running, although subway trains will run much less often than usual.
The weekend saw repeated blasts, those appeared to be mostly contained on the outskirts of central Kyiv. A feared onslaught of Russian missiles on the city centre did not materialise, and the capital remains in Ukraine’s hands.
However, Kyiv officials have warned the war is far from over, as street fighting continues in almost every district of the city. State officials say that those in Kyiv will wake up to see a cityscape that is vastly different from what they are used to.
“When you leave the city after 8am, you will see fortifications, anti-tank hedgehogs and other fortifications that have appeared on the streets of Kyiv,” the Kyiv City State Administration said.
The curfew will kick in again at 10pm and last till 7am tomorrow. But residents have been advised not to leave their homes and shelters in the daytime unless absolutely necessary.
