The head of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Military Administration Serhiy Lysak was the first who reported the information.

"The Russian army launched a rocket attack on Dnipro, damaging a nine-story building with several floors destroyed," he stated. 

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy reacted to the Russian attack. According to him, four floors were destroyed and three people were injured. Rescuers are providing all necessary assistance at the scene.

"That is why we constantly remind all our partners: only a sufficient quantity and quality of air defense systems, only sufficient determination of the world can stop Russian terror. We need these solutions - we need a reliable air shield for Ukraine," Zelenskyy emphasized.

Later, Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko reported that one person has died and five others are injured in Dnipro. He warned that there could be more victims trapped in their apartments as rescuers work to clear the rubble.

At 7:59 p.m., Lysak said that one person was killed, and 6 others were injured, including a 7-month-old baby, as a result of Russian attack.

According to him, three locals are in serious condition. They are women aged 27 and 30 and a 29-year-old man. The rest are in medium condition.

Ukrainian military expert Oleksandr Kovalenko described the attack as "another episode of bloody Russian terror".

As of 8:50 p.m., the number of the injured in Dnipro increased to 9. At least one person is killed, and two people are missing. 

The search and rescue operation continues.
