The city has proclaimed three days of mourning. Yesterday, intense missile attacks were launched against Ukraine as a whole, with Dnipro taking the brunt of the damage.
Three small fires were extinguished in the rubble, according to the State Emergency Service. Search and rescue efforts and the removal of hazardous structural components are ongoing. Over 40 people’s whereabouts beneath the debris are still unknown, according to Valentin Reznichenko, chief of the Dnipropetrovsk regional military administration.
Russia attacked a residential complex on Saturday, damaging more than 230 apartments while destroying 72, the building’s shattered structures are still being taken apart. According to Reznichenko, around 3,500 tonnes of debris had already been removed.
According to Yury Ignat, the spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force, the Russian army fired an X-22 missile at the nine-story residential building in Dnipro, which is intended to strike aircraft carrier groups at sea. They refer to X-22 as the “killer of aircraft carriers” in slang.
