Overnight shelling near the city center late Sunday left at least eight dead according to emergency officials.

The force of the explosion shattered every window in the high-rise next door and twisted their metal frames.

In the distance, the sound of artillery rang out as firefighters picked their way through the destruction in the densely populated Podil district.
