Locals Survey Damage to Kyiv Residential Tower After Deadly Attack

Residents surveyed heavy damage to a Kyiv high-rise on April 29, a day after the area was hit by a Russian attack.

According to Ukraine officials, the strike killed at least one person and injured at least 10. RFE/RL journalist and producer Vera Girich, who lived in the building, was killed, the outlet said on Friday.
