Yulia lives in Kyiv with her three-month-old baby and two young children who are five and eight. She describes how they shelter from Russian attacks in their bathroom and says she’s questioning whether to stay in the city where she has built her life, or leave to find somewhere safer in the west of the country.

The BBC Ukraine correspondent James Waterhouse updates us on the latest overnight attacks and explores the internal political tensions growing over a locked bomb shelter, a situation that proved fatal.

And surgery is hard enough without having to do it in a war zone. UK medic Shehan Hettiaratchy and Ukrainian surgeon Andriy Formanchuk explain how exchanging expertise is saving lives.

Today’s episode is presented by Victoria Derbyshire and Vitaly Shevchenko.

The producers were Clare Williamson, Madeleine Drury and Drew Hyndman. The technical producer was Hannah Montgomery. The series producer is Tim Walklate. The assistant editor is Alison Gee.
