Unexploded Russian missile is found in kitchen sink of Ukrainian's home after smashing through roof in besieged Kharkiv

AN unexploded Russian missile was shockingly found lodged in the kitchen sink of a Ukrainian's home after smashing through the roof.

Footage shows the huge rocket wedged in the corner of the room after miraculously only causing damage to the ceiling and sink at a house in the besieged city of Kharkiv.

The clip, shared on TikTok with almost 3million views, shows someone walking into the house where the giant missile can be seen stuck in the unit.

Aside from a little debris on the floor where the missile smashed through the ceiling, there appears to be no other damage to the home as it, fortunately, failed to explode.

A further video shared by @pd05763 appears to show members of a Ukrainian bomb disposal unit inspecting the rocket as one of them moves it with his hand.

Ukraine's government previously shared a picture of the unexploded missile, tweeting: "Imagine, it was Sunday morning and you were sleeping with your kids," as it called again for NATO to impose a no-fly zone over the country.

It comes as the eastern cities of Kharkiv, Sumy and Chernihiv continue to be hit hard by Russia's tactic of pounding urban areas with artillery as its troops have done before in Syria and Chechnya.

Kharkiv Mayor Igor Terekhov said hundreds of buildings, many residential, had been destroyed.

"It is impossible to say that the worst days are behind us, we are constantly being bombed," he said.

On Monday night, a witness in the city said she saw people on the roofs of apartment buildings dropping grenades or similar ordnance onto the streets.

Russian forces occupying Kherson used stun grenades and gunfire to disperse a rally of protesters as they gathered in Svobody Square.

Multiple videos on social media showed crowds gathering in the square today before loud bangs and flashes followed by intense gunfire caused them to flee.

Meanwhile, Russia has admitted it has lost nearly 10,000 troops in its invasion of Ukraine.

The previously undisclosed figure was revealed by a pro-Kremlin newspaper and lays bare the true cost of Vladimir Putin's disastrous invasion.

The Russian tyrant expected a swift victory when he ordered the invasion but his forces have met stiff Ukrainian resistance and could even soon buckle.
