DRAMATIC video Lucky escape as missile slams into Kyiv residential high-rise

A DRAMATIC video shows a missile directly striking a residential block in Kyiv showering debris below and destroying several homes.

One clip even captured the fireball as it burst through an apartment living room.

Miraculously no-one was killed in the attack but highlights the huge danger to civilians caught in the war zone.

According to news agency Nexta, the heavily-damaged building is located on Lobanovsky Avenue, in Kyiv's Solon'Yans'Kyi district.

Kyiv has been under bombardment since Russia's soldiers continued their push to capture the capital city.
