WATCH: A Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty journalist was killed after a Russian strike targeted Kyiv on April 28. Radio Liberty said journalist and producer Vira Hyrych was found dead the morning after the attack, which struck her home. – Apr 29, 2022

The body of Ukrainian journalist Vira Hyrych was pulled out of the wreckage of an apartment building in Kyiv on Friday, a day after two Russian missiles struck the city.

Wary Kyiv residents gathered on April 29 at the scene of the missile strike in the Shevchenkivskyi district, where the first two floors of a newly opened 25-storey apartment building were largely destroyed.

Two powerful explosions rocked central Kyiv at about 8 p.m. local time on Thursday, shortly after UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in the city.

Zelenskyy said five missiles had been launched at Kyiv and three were intercepted.

Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said four people were taken to hospital on Thursday night and rescuers had pulled a body out of the rubble on Friday morning.

Klitschko said there were few residents in the building at the time as it had only just opened.

Hyrych’s employer, Radio Freedom, confirmed her death on Friday in a statement. They said she had worked for the company for four years as a producer and she worked on “leading Ukrainian TV channels” prior to that.
