The installation was used by Kiev’s military to house various equipment, including an anti-aircraft antenna, RIA Novosti reported, citing pro-Russian locals. The tower was once the tallest building in the city, measuring just over 240 meters.

The tower sustained a direct hit by an unknown high-precision projectile, which took roughly a third of the structure completely off, footage shows.

The top part of the tower collapsed after the strike. It was not immediately clear whether it caused any damage on the ground, given that the tower is located in a remote wooded area in the north of the Ukrainian city.

The fallen part of the tower landed in the woods surrounding the Kharkov TV center, videos shared online in the aftermath of the strike indicate. The massive structure apparently remained in one piece after falling more than 100 meters, crushing trees in the area.

Russia has increased missile strikes across Ukraine this month in retaliation for drone attacks on its oil infrastructure. The main targets included Ukrainian power stations and communication towers.
