THIS terrifying video shows a missile exploding just yards away from a lorry rescuing horses from Ukraine.
Brave racehorse trainer Gay Kelleway has made the 2,800-mile round trip doing all she can to save people and animals from the destruction brought on by Vladimir Putin’s war.

Brave Kelleway has made it her mission to save people and horses from Ukraine
Kelleway, the first female jockey to ride a winner at Royal Ascot, posted a video showing the danger of her missions on Twitter.
A rocket can be seen hurtling through the sky above one of the lorries carrying horses in front.
It crashes to earth next to a building still in shot and shakes the camera as it detonates with an almighty blast.
An enormous fireball bursts out and a huge cloud of thick black smoke fills the sky.
Kelleway, who is in her late 50s, titled the video simply: “Getting horses out of Ukraine.”
Viewers were in shock at the clip and praised the Newmarket trainer for going to such lengths to save those in grave danger.
One comment read: “That is frightening. The job you are doing Gay is unbelievable.”
Another Twitter user wrote: “Startling footage this.”
While one post read: “Oh my God, how bloody frightening is that.”
It is not clear when the video was filmed or if Kelleway was indeed behind the wheel of the lorry.
Kelleway, who spent time on the Poland-Ukraine border desperately trying to save horses caught up in the war, has previously spoken of the horrors she has witnessed.
The daughter of late jockey Paul Kelleway, who won the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 1969, told the Daily Mail: “What I have seen is terrible. There is a hub for the horses near the border close to Lviv and we heard gunfire in the distance.
“There are some poor people who are managing to get horses to the border but then have to abandon them because they have no money to get them across.
“They are hoping people like us will get them, look after them and help them to be fostered.
“One girl brought her pony in a trailer. She was 25 and said she had lost everything and wanted to kill herself.
“There are a few racehorses but it is all types — mares, foals, ponies.
“One mare had had a foal successfully when there was bombing all around her. They managed to get her out.”
Legendary jockey and former TV star Willie Carson’s son Neil has been with Kelleway on her missions, along with a team of helpers sourcing all the food and supplies they need to try to save people and animals.
Kelleway is looking to raise £40,000 to help reunite owners and horses torn apart by the conflict.
