Rescuers are pulling people out of the rubble, doctors are treating the wounded, and those who were lucky enough to survive are watching their 18-story building burn with sadness and pain in their eyes. This is how the morning of February 7 turned out for the residents of Kyiv due to another massive Russian attack.


On the morning of February 7, air raid alerts were sounded throughout Ukraine. Six regions were under Russian attack, and most of the missiles were fired at the capital.
