Due to a Russian missile attack on Dnipro, 236 apartments in the building cannot be restored, and 25 cars also have been destroyed

Prosecutor General of Ukraine Andriy Kostin, Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Kyrylo Tymoshenko, and Dnipro Mayor Borys Filatov shared the information during a joint briefing in Dnipro.

Earlier, Suspilne reported, citing Dnipro Mayor Borys Filatov, that restoration of 236 apartments in the building is impossible.

According to him, the city hall helps the victims with temporary housing and prepares financial aid payments. The payment amount has not yet been announced.

 "We are currently settling people in dormitories, but they will need permanent housing. So further assistance from the state will be necessary. According to approximate estimates, 236 apartments are not subject to restoration. We will provide financial assistance from the city council and the mayor," Filatov said.

Emergency crews are finishing dismantling the rubble and the overhanging slabs on the site of the destroyed part of the high-rise building.
