The footage briefly shows the missile heading straight for the mall, creating a huge fireball.

The video was reportedly released by the Russian military itself to prove that Ukrainian forces were using the mall to plant their own missiles and to justify the brutal attack.

Another chilling video captured by a nearby CCTV camera shows the moment a missile hits the building, sending a ball of fire hundreds of feet into the air.

The blast hurls debris everywhere while nearby buildings are rocked by the gigantic bang, blowing out their windows.

Photos of the aftermath in Kyiv’s Podilskyi district show how the attack left the mall in a smoldering wreck and completely devastated.

A huge crater was left behind as rescuers scrambled to drag bloodied victims scattered among the rubble.

Police said at least eight people were killed amid fears dozens more were missing in the carnage.

On Monday Mayor Vitali Klitschko said the attack was one of several bombs dropped on the city overnight.

Other razed homes, offices and a gym were also hit as the city braced for a 26th day of Russian attacks.

After the mall attack, the former heavyweight boxing champion declared the start of another 35-hour curfew – from 8pm tonight to 7am on Wednesday.

The attack is just the latest example of this merciless Russian troops shell civilian areas.

According to the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office, 150 children have been killed and 148 injured “in the armed attack by the Russian Federation on Ukraine”.

They suggested the actual numbers might be higher due to difficulties in confirming details in a war zone.

Prosecutors said the largest number of confirmed victims was 58 in Kyiv.

38 children died in the eastern city of Kharkiv, 29 in Donetsk and 31 in Chernihiv.

Recent developments in the war-torn country can also be seen Ukraine bravely rejects Russia’s ultimatum to abandon the besieged city of Mariupol.

Russia promised to create two humanitarian corridors if troops abandon the key city and soldiers stop fighting.

However, the Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine reportedly denied the request at the eleventh hour.

Thousands are said to have died in the port city after endless Russian missile attacks.

Locals were forced to bury the dead in mass graves and makeshift roadside burials.

Meanwhile Mayor of Mariupol Vadym Boychenko compared Russian President Vladimir Putin to Adolf Hitler His invading forces were reportedly forcibly deporting Ukrainians to sinister Russian labor camps.

He said Moscow’s actions were like “the horrific events of World War II, when the Nazis forcibly captured people.”

Western intelligence agencies estimate that Russia is losing up to 1,000 soldiers a day — the highest casualty rate since World War II.
