Kyiv (CNN)Kateryna Yurko was in her store when the first missile hit the ground just across the street.

The impact shook her. It was very, very loud.
She and her employees ran to the basement, making it underground just before the next explosion. Yurko's store is just across the road from Kyiv's TV tower, which was hit by a Russian strike on Tuesday.
Five people were killed in the assault. There was still blood on the streets the next day.
