The battle for Kyiv is continuing with the Russians meeting stiff resistance as they try to battle their way into the city.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has defiantly refused to flee as reports emerge of Russian saboteurs roaming the city.

With dawn breaking, the extent of the damage inflicted on Kyiv became clear as soldiers were seen next to the charred remains on vehicles in the city’s roads.

Initial reports pinned the blame for the tower block missile attack on Russia – a claim the country’s defence ministry later denied.

CCTV from a nearby block shows the moment the missile slammed into the building, near Zhuliany airport, on the outskirts of Kyiv.

Petro Prokopov, a firefighter who was taking part in rescue efforts, said at least six people were injured and 80 people evacuated, as apartments on two floors were gutted by fire.

He said the building on the southwestern edge of Kyiv was hit between the 16th and 21st floors.
