As Russia launched missile attacks on Ukraine early Thursday morning, a live TikTok video captured an explosion. Other videos begin circulating on social media as residents of Kyiv began documenting the attack.
A “massive bombing” in Mariupol, Ukraine at 5:30 am can also be seen and heard in this video.
According to CNN, several explosions were reported around the Ukrainian city of Kramatorsk, but people were still heading to work. Missile strikes were also recorded by Twitter account @Lukewearchange showing a series of missiles being fired toward the city of Kyiv.
