Russia ends the year by killing, wounding, displacing civilians:
As Ukrainians were about to gather to celebrate New Year, hoping for a better year ahead, Russia went the extra mile to deprive people of even the slightest holiday mood.
A few kilometers from central Kyiv, multiple ambulances stood waiting.
In one ambulance, the crew was trying to calm down a yelling man with a slight hysterical snap in his voice. 
An older woman looked to be on the verge of tears as she looked for her daughter, saying she didn't know where she was.
Down the hill, near Protsiv Yar, a big crater appeared to have been gouged into the path. The explosion appeared to have destroyed one of the two-story buildings in the area. 
A nearby, taller residential building also appeared to have been struck by a fragment — several top-floor windows knocked out, the area around them charred black.
However, the lights were on in it and the neighboring buildings.
A neighbor, Victoria, who declined to provide her last name, said she heard that a man had been killed and a woman seriously injured. Earlier reports suggested that three people were affected at this location.
Locals who didn't decline to comment reported hearing different numbers of explosions.
Besides a strike, Victoria said she also heard multiple blasts that sounded like they were the result of air defense systems.
She was at home and took shelter in her hallway.
"I was crying, I was so scared," she said. "But now I'm okay. It's done, and we can't do anything about it now. --->READ MORE HERE
