THE moment a Russian missile blew up a community center in Ukraine was filmed.
Horror footage shows the building engulfed in flames after the missile was fired, in what Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called an act of “absolute evil”.
Seven civilians, including an 11-year-old girl, were injured in the attack on the House of Culture in the Ukrainian town of Lozova.
Lozova is located about 45 miles, southwest of Izium, a Russian-occupied town in the Kharkiv region of Ukraine.
The missile was seen in the video in milliseconds as it descended to earth before destroying the building.
In the Telegram message accompanied by the video, Zelensky slammed the attack.
“Russian missile strike on newly renovated culture house,” he said.
“The occupiers have identified culture, education and humanity as their enemies. And they spare them neither missiles nor bombs.
“What’s on the minds of people who choose such targets? Absolute evil, absolute stupidity.
Ukraine’s Defense Ministry accused the Russians of “deliberately terrorizing the civilian population” of the country.
Throughout the war in Ukraine, the Russians carried out missile attacks that killed dozens of civilians.
In April, at least 50 people were killed and more than 100 injured after a Russian missile with “for children” written on the side bombed a Ukrainian train station.
Horror footage showed bodies strewn on the ground next to abandoned luggage at Kramatorsk train station in eastern Ukraine amid reports the site had been blasted by Russian troops.
About 4,000 people, mostly elderly people, women and children, were at the station when it was struck, Mayor Oleksander Honcharenko said.
The footage showed a huge missile with Russian script scrawled on the side that translates to “the children.”
At the start of the war, at least ten people were killed and dozens injured when a Russian missile fired on the besieged city of Kharkiv.
Footage showed the strike which turned the city’s Freedom Square into rubble and devastated the nearby administration office.
Footage shows the aftermath as firefighters were left removing bodies from inside the bombed-out building.
