Video posted online, which CNN has geolocated and verified its authenticity, shows a damaged train platform just outside of Kyiv’s central train station following a strike Wednesday evening.

The damage seen in the video is at the Pivnichna train station, which is located just over 700 feet from Kyiv’s central station. Hundreds of refugees attempting to flee the conflict in Ukraine are at the central train station in Kyiv.

In the video, the damaged building appears to be a ticket station on the train platform.

The sound of the blast could be heard across the city, according to CNN’s team on the ground.

According to the Ukrainian Interior Ministry, a major heating pipeline in Kyiv was damaged in the strike.
