At certain times of day, the skyline is rendered practically invisible in an unfortunate combination of moderate air pollution and the remnants of previous skirmishes.

The Russian military continues to ruthlessly destroy Ukrainian cities and kill civilians. Infrastructure is left completely ineffective, and surviving citizens in war-torn areas suffer as a result. On the morning of March 14, Russian soldiers fired at a skyscraper Kyiv, as well as at the “Antonov” aircraft production plant.

According to preliminary data, two people were killed and 7 others were injured in the bombing of a residential building. Approximately 70 people were evacuated from the site of the explosion.

There are no details yet regarding the shelling of the Antonov plant. We will provide a written update when information becomes available.
