Wow. This is a scary video to see. Thank God the young girl is okay, but I want to warn you that this could be very dramatic and scary for some people to watch. But before we get into that, let me give you the back story. As you likely know by now a suicide bomber in a van exploded on the bridge that goes from Russia to Crimea. Many experts believe this was the work of Ukraine, which celebrated the bombing. Even the official Ukraine Twitter accounts openly celebrated, some in a not so “appropriate” fashion, especially since innocent people were killed and many injured.
Well, today, Russia hit back at Ukraine, by sending missiles over to Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital city.
Here’s what the Financial Times reported on the Russian bombing in Kyiv:

Vladimir Putin has described Russia’s massive air strikes on Ukraine, its most extensive since the early weeks of his seven-month invasion, as retaliation for the bombing of the bridge linking Russia to the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea. Speaking at a meeting of his security council on Monday, the Russian president accused Kyiv of a “terrorist attack” at the Kerch bridge, damaged by an explosion on Saturday, and said “leaving such a crime without a response is just impossible”. Though Putin claimed the targets were military, energy and communications assets, early footage and evidence of the damage showed that a playground and a bridge in central Kyiv were hit, as well as civilian infrastructure across the country. Russia’s defence ministry said its strikes “hit all the assigned targets”. The Russian army has been losing ground in regions of southeastern Ukraine that Putin unilaterally claimed as part of Russia last month. On Saturday Moscow suffered a blow to its prestige after the attack on the bridge, a symbol of the 2014 Russian annexation of Crimea, which it had claimed to be well guarded. Dmytro Kuleba, Ukraine foreign minister, tweeted: “Russia had been constantly hitting Ukraine with missiles before the bridge, too. Putin is desperate because of battlefield defeats and uses missile terror to try to change the pace of war in his favor.” The early morning attacks used at least 75 missiles, 41 of which Ukrainian air defences managed to shoot down, according to Valerii Zaluzhnyi, commander-in-chief of Ukraine’s armed forces. It was not clear if anti-missile defences in Kyiv were activated. The missiles also struck Lviv, in western Ukraine; Dnipro, in the centre of the country; and several other cities, including Zaporizhzhia and Mykolayiv in the south, which are close to the frontline. There were reports of explosions in the Black Sea port of Odesa, and air raid alerts went off in every part of Ukraine, other than occupied Crimea. Putin warned he was prepared to repeat the strikes if Ukraine continued to hit Russian infrastructure targets. On Sunday he accused Ukrainian intelligence services of hitting the Crimea bridge over the Kerch Strait. “If attempts to carry out terrorist attacks on our territory continue, Russia’s response will be severe and at the level of the threats facing it. Nobody should be in any doubt,” Putin said on Monday.
So, now, we get to this young girl who was walking along while filming a video on her phone. As she’s walking, you can see she must hear something because her eyes get wide and she looks startled, and then all of a sudden you hear the explosion, but not only that, you see it happen. You see her screen turn orange, and the look of horror in her eyes, and how this massive win sweeps in, blowing her hair all over the place.

Thank God this young girl is alive and can walk away from that, unscathed.
