Kyiv, Ukraine. The relative calm in Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital, was shattered Sunday morning when Russian rockets hit a residential building, killing at least one person, officials said.

According to the authorities, a 7-year-old girl was recovered from the rubble. Her father died, and her mother, a Russian citizen, was injured. According to them, the top three floors of a nine-story building in the Shevchenko district were destroyed.

“People are under the rubble,” Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko wrote on Telegram. “Two victims were hospitalized.”

Residents of Kyiv reported four explosions on Sunday morning, the day after a series of Russian missile attacks on Ukraine. The attacks came as leaders of the G7 of the world’s richest democracies prepared to meet in Germany, with Ukrainian officials saying they believe Moscow is trying to send a signal to Ukraine and its Western allies.

This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmitry Kuleba. tweeted that the child, rescued on Sunday, “slept peacefully in Kyiv until a Russian cruise missile blew up her home.”

“Many more people across Ukraine are on strike,” he wrote. “The G7 summit should respond with more sanctions against Russia and heavier weapons for Ukraine.”

Yuriy Ignat, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force command, said Russia used long-range missiles fired by aircraft over the Caspian Sea, more than 900 miles southeast of Kyiv.

Natalya, 63, and her daughter Olga, 32, watched from the parking lot of an apartment building as firefighters tried to put out the fire. They were carrying a stretcher from the eighth floor down the stairs, which had been exposed by the explosion.

Natalia, a doctor who asked not to be named, said she had recently returned to Kyiv seeking respite from the heavy shelling in her hometown of Kharkov.

“It’s like a nightmare,” she told Olga. “When will it end?”

Olga and her husband, Roman, 35, said they were waiting for further instructions from the police. They feared that the glass in the window was broken and that looters would steal their property. “Earlier, this area was called the “quiet center,” says Olga.

Authorities said they were evacuating 25 residents of the residential complex.

Russian missiles too hit Kyiv in early Juneinjuring at least one person and disrupting weeks of relative calm in the capital after Russian troops abandoned their attempts to take it.

Another explosion on Sunday damaged a kindergarten next to a residential complex, an adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine said on Telegram.

Dmitry Dzhizhinsky woke up on Sunday morning to turn off the air conditioner in his apartment. Moments later, the building was hit and thrown across the room.

“I live here, I wanted to return to the apartment that I bought and renovated,” he said. Dzhizhinsky, 26, just returned from western Ukraine.

“I think I’ll stay, my apartment is fine,” he said. “But we understand that it can happen at any moment.”
