How Russian strikes destroy high-rise buildings by Texty.org.ua
Since the beginning of the large-scale invasion of Russia on February 24 and the related hostilities in Ukraine, almost 121 thousand residential buildings, in which about a million families lived, have already been damaged and destroyed. About 13,000 of them are large apartment buildings.
TEXTY decided to show 8 examples of how high-rise buildings are destroyed by Russian strikes, with comments from a civil engineer. There are examples of specific buildings to look at exactly how destruction occurs during shelling or fire, and which of them are or are not subject to restoration.
The project shows each destroyed building as a real photo and also as a constructive scheme with comments on important parts.
The project presented as a story, so the reader can compare different types of buildings. 8 examples were from different regions: Mariupol, ChasivYar, Borodyanka, Kyiv, Chernihiv, Kharkiv, Odesa, Irpin. The last one is the most famous destroyed houses in Irpin housing complex, which was shown to international delegations during regular tours to the places of atrocities committed by Russian soldiers in the capital's suburbs in February-March.
