Missile hits Kyiv apartment building

Video obtained by Reuters showed the moment a missile hit an apartment block, captured by surveillance camera from a nearby building on Saturday (February 26).

In the footage, the camera is pointed towards the skyline when a missile slams into the block opposite, causing fire and a plume of dark smoke to rise.

The owner of the apartment confirmed to Reuters that the camera was initially placed in the apartment to monitor security, but after deciding to leave the apartment for a more secure location, they placed the camera facing out of the window “so that at any moment I could see how the situation was in the sky over Kyiv”.

Dozens of people were wounded in overnight fighting in Kyiv, city mayor Vitali Klitschko said on Saturday morning, extending a curfew in the capital.

The prolonged curfew will last from 5 pm until 8 am every day to ensure the more effective defence of the city and the safety of its people, mayor Vitaly Klitschko wrote on Twitter, as gunfire, explosions and sirens resounded around the capital.
