This is the shocking moment a wealthy Ukrainian student fired a gun at pedestrians from a fifth-floor balcony.

The footage from central Kharkiv shows the shooter standing on a balcony while aiming a black pistol with two hands.

He fires two shots towards the street then a further three into the air before turning inside with a smile on his face and saying: ‘Someone is going to call the cops.’  

Earlier in October, the student posted a picture with a gun near the office of one of the deans of Kharkiv National University

The Instagram page, which carries the name damn.sultan, has now been shut down

The student then bragged about the shooting on his Instagram page where it was found by police who arrested him and three friends who were there at the time.

The Instagram page, which carries the name damn.sultan, has now been shut down. 

It showed the student posing in numerous selfies at the gym, at university and in his friend’s apartment. 

Earlier in October, the student posted a picture with a gun near the office of one of the deans of Kharkiv National University. 

According to Newsroom, the account had a link to the shooter’s VKontakte (Russian Facebook) page where he was signed up as Roman Dobrenky. 

Although no-one was injured, the students are reportedly under house arrest with criminal proceedings started against them. 

They face three to seven years in jail for ‘hooliganism with the use of firearms’.

Kharkiv National University confirmed the student was one of theirs, saying: ‘We confirm that this is a student of the faculty of foreign languages, we can not name the person, these are confidential data.’ 

It comes after a Ukrainian heiress killed six people when she crashed into pedestrians at high speed in the same city. 

The horrifying moment 20-year-old Alyona Zaitseva mowed down the victims was caught on camera as her Lexus mounted the pavement before flipping on its side.

Her armed bodyguards drove up in two jeeps immediately after the crash and protected her from a furious crowd who witnessed the crash. 

The dead included a 15-year-old schoolgirl. 

Ms Zaitseva, the daughter of local energy company multi-millionaire Vasily Zaitsev, was uninjured and now faces trial.  

A glamorous 20-year-old heiress has been detained after she ‘jumped a red light and rammed into a crowd killing six’, say police
