The professional boxer and politician said several houses were damaged by torpedoes in the shelling of the Podilskyi district.

He said at least one victim was killed in the attack that took place just after midnight local time.

The gruesome imagery shows firefighters fighting to put out the raging flames while rescue teams search for rubble.

The mayor of Kyiv tweeted: “Friends! Several explosions occurred in the capital Podilsky district.

“Especially in some houses and in one shopping center, according to current information.

“Rescue workers, medical staff and police are already in place. Rescue workers are putting out a large fire.

“Currently there is only one victim. All services are working on the spot: rescue, medical staff, police, etc. We are clarifying information.”

A team was seen carrying a man seriously injured from the rubble of a building on a stretcher and placing him in an ambulance.

A brutal attack comes after another devastation in a war-torn country.

Russian forces are said to have blown up a school in Mariupol where up to 400 civilians were evacuating to escape shelling.

It is known that many women and children are still trapped under the rubble after being attacked overnight.

It is currently unknown if there were any casualties.

The strategically important southern port city has witnessed some of the fiercest battles of the war to date.

And earlier this week, Putin’s forces bombed a theater in Mariupol, which is being used as a shelter for some 1,200 people.

Desolated Mariupol

130 people were rescued, but the exact number of casualties is unknown.

The Maxar space technology company said satellite imagery showed the word “children” in large white letters in Russian on the outside of the front and back of the building.

According to the report, Putin made it clear that his atrocities had no end on March 11 after his troops opened fire on an elderly nursing home, killing 56 people.

The shocking incident is said to have taken place in Kreminna, a small town in the fugitive pro-Russian region of Luhansk.

About 15 survivors were then reportedly abducted by Russian troops and taken to the nearby city of Svatobe, occupied by troops loyal to Vladimir Putin, about 25 miles north.

But despite the ruthless shelling of Mariupol, Ukraine brilliantly rejected Moscow’s gruesome ultimatum to surrender the besieged city.

no surrender

Moscow has promised to create two humanitarian corridors if the military abandons key areas and soldiers cease fighting.

However, according to the report, the deputy prime minister of Ukraine rejected the 11 o’clock request.

Irina Vereshchuk accused Lieutenant Colonel Mikhail Mizintsev of the bullying when she said that those who meet the 5 a.m. Moscow time deadline “guarantee a safe escape”.

The head of the Russian Defense Control Center asked Kyiv for a written response to his proposal.

But the defiant politician told Ukrainian journalist Pravda:

“We have already informed the Russian side of this. I wrote, ‘Do not waste your time on a letter on page 8, open the hallway.'”

It comes after a series of horrific attacks on the peaceful city over the past few days, claiming that residents were forcibly taken to Russia and deprived of their Ukrainian passports.
