CCTV Shows Moment of Strike in Vinnytsia

A security camera captured people rushing for cover as a Russian missile struck a busy central square in the Ukrainian city of Vinnytsia on Thursday, July 14, killing and wounding dozens of people.

The footage was recorded on a camera outside the House of Officers, a Soviet-era concert hall, on Victory Square, and was released by Ukraine’s Ministry of Culture and Information Policy.

As the missile strikes, civilians walking and cycling through the square dive to the ground or run for shelter as debris rains down and a plume of smoke and dust casts a shadow over the area.

The strike killed at least 23 people, including three children, according to a 10 pm update from Ukraine’s State Emergency Service (SES). Another 34 people were in serious condition, five were in critical condition, and 39 people were still missing, the SES said. Credit: Stratcom Centre UA via Storyful
