Representatives from both sides are due to meet shortly in a bid to end over a fortnight of fighting.

Both Moscow and Kyiv have said that progress was made during negotiations over the weekend.

The UK has said that Russian naval forces currently control Ukraine’s Black Sea coast, thereby cutting the country off from maritime trade.

And US officials have claimed that Russia has asked China for military assistance and help in evading sanctions, with the Chinese authorities denying knowledge.

The invasion, dubbed a “special military operation” by the Kremlin, has resulted in a confirmed 596 civilian deaths and 1,067 wounded, according to the UN.

The real figures are believed to be considerably higher.
