Russia Ukraine conflict: airstrikes hit civilian buildings across Kyiv

International Editor

The Ukrainian capital was awoken before dawn by a series of explosions from Russian strikes – on day 20 of the war.

In the north of the city, an apartment block was hit in the Podil neighbourhood. To the east, a rocket landed on a private house in Osokorky. And in the west, towards the contested suburb of Irpin.

International editor Lindsey Hilsum visited a 10-storey block which was targeted in the Svyatoshyn district from where she sent this report.

This report was filmed and produced by Soren Munk and Rob Hodge.
