Ukraine gives all-clear after air raid alerts

Earlier air raid sirens had sounded in Kyiv and across other Ukrainian regions. Officials have since given the all-clear, with no new Russian attacks reported.

Unconfirmed reports on social media suggested the sirens may have been triggered after Russian jets took to the skies in Belarus and that the all-clear was sounded after the planes returned to their bases, Qazet.az reports according to Reuters.

Yuriy Ihnat, a spokesperson for the Ukrainian air force, told national television earlier today that Russian military jets were flying virtually around the clock.
