Rescue operations are now underway in the Dnipro after the Russian strike. Several floors of an ordinary residential building were destroyed, the station was damaged. Kryvyi Rih and Synelnikove were also under attack in the Dnipro region. All the wounded are given help. Unfortunately, there are casualties. My condolences to the family and friends, says the Telegram channel of the head of state.

The President emphasised that every state that provides air defence systems to Ukraine, every leader who helps to convince partners that air defence should now not be in warehouses but in real cities and communities that terrorists hit, everyone who supports our defence is a lifesaver.

We must defeat Russian terror. This is a need not only for our state but also for Ukrainians — it is a global need.

The head of state emphasised that Russia must be responsible for its terror, and every missile, every "Shahed", must be shot down.

The world can guarantee this, the partners have the necessary capabilities. This has been proven, in particular, in the skies of the Middle East, and it should work in the skies of Europe, he added.

At the same time, the Minister of Internal Affairs, Ihor Klymenko, also reported the details of the invaders' attack.

In Dnipro, a five-story residential building and civil infrastructure objects were damaged. As of now, there are two dead and 16 injured in the city. 30 people received psychological help.
