Horrific footage showed the moment children screamed in fear and ran when a Russian missile hit a Ukrainian hotel.
Two of Moscow’s Iskander missiles hit the Reikartz Hotel in Zaporizhzhia city centre on Thursday evening.
One died and 16 were left injured, including four children, from the attack on the hotel on the bank of the Dnipro River.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said when confirming the incident: “Zaporizhzhia. The city suffers daily from Russian shelling.
“A fire broke out in a civilian building after the occupiers hit it with a missile.”
The nightmarish clip shows children gathered near the smoking hotel duck as a missile flew overhead.
After it hits the hotel they can be heard screaming and crying.
The Reikartz was being used as a children’s summer camp which had ended just an hour before the strike, Ukraine’s defence ministry said.
