Ukraine LIVE: ‘Desperate’ Putin warns of mutiny as ‘terrible’ weapons shortages revealed | The world | News

Former US Marine John Sennett, 57, originally from New Jersey, moved to the Ukrainian capital with his wife Natasha in November 2020, where they now live with their dog Philly, named after John’s beloved Philadelphia Eagles.

He told Express.co.uk: “They hit when I was just out walking the dog at about eight in the morning, 8.05. The ground shook, but the ground has shaken before and I thought, ‘Well, they’re probably didn’t hit anywhere near us’.

“So we went towards our normal path, which takes us up to Taras Shevchenko Boulevard. I saw a bunch of people running that way and thought ‘oh, what’s this?’ And when I got up there I saw it hit right on the route I usually take the dog, either me or the wife, today was my day So I went as close as I could get and then the damage.

“There was a car that I assumed had bodies in it and they had put some sort of barriers in the windows so people wouldn’t stare.”

Sennett, who moved to Ukraine with his wife so they could be closer to her parents in Belarus, reflected on his lucky escape: “Shevchenko Park is this green space in the center of Kiev and it’s really convenient to walk your dog . . .

“I used to come home on Voldymyrska Street, which is right where it hit. The windows were blown out, the cars were on fire, there was debris everywhere. There were people who had come out of their offices with some blood on their faces.”
