On Thursday, Russian missiles struck the center of Kyiv. One of the missiles hit an apartment building. As a result, Radio Free Europe journalist Vira Hyrych was killed. The Prague-based news outlet said that the missiles damaged the first and the second floor of the 25-story residential building, causing a fire. The shelling took place during the visit of UN Secretary-General on Thursday, with the reporter's body discovered on Friday morning.
In his daily video address, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Russian strikes on Thursday were an attempt to "humiliate" the global organization.
The missiles hit a residential neighborhood in Kyiv less than an hour after he and UN chief Antonio Guterres held a joint press conference some 3.5 kilometers (2 miles) away.
