Nina Vlasiuk was at home with her 10-year-old daughter when the Russian missile crashed into her apartment building in a Kiev suburb. “The first explosion was very strong. After the second explosion, the house started shaking. It was very scary. Things start flying: dust, fragments… I have no words to describe the scene. I covered my son. We waited until it was over,” she told her Reuters. In Vlasiuk’s kitchen, the window was blown out and the wall tiles covered the dining table. The day after the attack, there was still no electricity, heat or water at the house, and he did not know when supplies would be restored. According to Kiev, these attacks targeting civilians are war crimes.
