Ukraine war: Boxing coach filmed celebrating his daughter’s birthday – before he was killed in Dnipro missile strike that hit apartment | World News

Footage has emerged of a Ukrainian father celebrating his daughter’s birthday with candles and cake in a kitchen – before he was killed in a Russian missile strike in the same apartment.

Last Saturday’s attack in Dnipro ripped through the outer wall of a flat, as images of a vibrant yellow kitchen exposed to the elements spread across social media.

Now an unknown video appears. Ukrainian Boxing coach Mykhailo Korinovsky was in the same kitchen with his daughter earlier, blowing out the four candles on her cake as he stood behind her, holding his other daughter in his arms.

Regional governor Valentin Reznichenko said at least 45 people, including six children, had been killed. Strike at apartment block on Saturday.

Other members of Mr. Kurinoski’s family were not at home when the building was hit.

The last rites have been performed for the coach, whose wife and two daughters were among those who attended the ceremony inside the sports centre.

Ukraine says the apartment block was hit by a Russian KH-22 missile, an antiquated weapon that appears to be inaccurate and that Ukraine lacks the air defenses to shoot down.

The Soviet-era missile was developed to destroy warships during the Cold War.

The attack was one of the deadliest attacks on civilians during the invasion.

The Kremlin has denied that a wave of missile strikes that day hit any residential buildings.
