Zaporizhzhia, Dnipro, Odesa, and Kyiv have declared a Day of Mourning for the victims of the Russian missile strike on December 29, which killed dozens of people and wounded over 150

This was reported by the Secretary of Zaporizhzhia City Council Anatoliy Kurtiev, the Head of Odesa Regional State Administration Oleh Kiper and the Head of Dnipro Regional State Administration Serhiy Lysak.

"On December 29, Russians brutally ended the lives of nine innocent civilians in our city," wrote the secretary of the Zaporizhzhia City Council, saying that the city had declared a Day of Mourning.

Mourning was also declared in Odesa and the region.

"Due to the human losses caused by the Russian missile attack, mourning will be declared in Odesa and the region tomorrow. Once again, I express my sincere condolences to those who have lost loved ones today," wrote the head of the Odesa Regional Military Administration.

The head of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Military Administration noted that the night of December 30 was without shelling in all cities and villages of Dnipropetrovsk region, but the city declared a Day of Mourning for the victims of the December 29 attack.

"The region has "exhaled" after the horror experienced the day before. Today in Dnipro is a Day of Mourning for those whose lives were cut short by yesterday's missile attack on the city. Russian forces killed 6 civilians," he wrote.

Kyiv Mayor Vitalii Klitschko said that the attack on the capital on December 29 was the largest in terms of the number of civilian casualties. January 1 will be declared a Day of Mourning in Kyiv.

  • On the night of December 29, Russia launched several groups of Shahed drones that attacked Ukraine, and in the morning the terrorists launched missiles. They hit multi-storey buildings, educational institutions, a shopping center and a maternity hospital. More than 100 wounded and 35 dead are reported.
