Ukraine’s presidential advisor Oleksiy Aristovich has tendered his resignation after he pointed out that Kyiv had shot down a Russian missile that hit a building in Dnipro, killing 44 people.

Aristovic apologized and said he had made a “fundamental mistake”.

The original comment sparked widespread outrage in the country, and Russian officials used it to pin the blame on Ukraine.

The consultant is a well-known figure for his daily YouTube updates, which are watched by millions.
