There may still be people under the rubble at two locations in Kyiv after the massive shelling on July 8, according to the deputy head of the Kyiv City State Administration Mykola Povoroznyk, Radio Liberty reports.

"There is no clarity at the moment. We will be able to answer this question accurately (whether there are people under the rubble - ed.) after the search and rescue operation is completed. There may be people under the rubble," he said.
