The death toll from Russian missile attack that destroyed an apartment building in the Ukrainian city of Dnipro rose to 14 as rescuers searched for survivors throughout the night, the regional governor said early today.
“The search operation continues,” Valentin Reznichenko, governor of the Dnipropetrovsk region in east-central Ukraine, said in a message on the Telegram platform at 2:50 a.m. (local time and Greek time).
According to him, 38 people were rescued, more than 20 are missing while an unspecified number of residents remained trapped under the pile of rubble after the attack that took place yesterday evening and resulted in at least 64 people being injured.
The strikes hit critical infrastructure in Kyiv and other regions, causing widespread power outages in the heart of winter in the capital and other large parts of the country that will continue for days to come, officials warned.
The strikes – the largest wave of Russian attacks on Ukraine two weeks ago–they happened on the day Ukrainians celebrated the coming of the New Year (based on the Julian calendar).
