Overnight on Thursday, Russian forces attacked Ukraine in what is considered the largest attack on a European state since World War II.
The move took place after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced an official declaration of war, ordering “a special military operation” on Ukraine in a televised address.
Explosions, gunfire, and missiles were heard and seen throughout the morning in the city of Kyiv — home to some 3 million people.
Buildings, homes and several structures in the city were — in a blink of eye — abandoned as Russia plans to overtake the city in the coming days.
The damage thus far has resulted in Russian forces seizing a Chernobyl nuclear plant and airport near Kyiv.
But surprisingly, listing sites show dozen of active listings for massive multi-million-dollar mansions throughout the capital city. Here’s a look inside.
