The head of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Military Administration, Serhiy Lysak, said.

According to him, the Russian occupation forces have launched a massive attack on the region for the second night in a row.

The defenders of the sky destroyed 10 shahed drones in Dniprovskyi district, but there were also several hits in the city of Dnipro.

In particular, an energy facility came under Russian attack. A fire broke out there and has been extinguished by rescuers. The Russian aggressor also hit an infrastructure facility. It also caught fire and was quickly extinguished.

"I am grateful to those who are eliminating the consequences of Russian terror 24/7. Among them are the heroes of the power sector. They have already restored electricity to the residents of Pavlohrad district after yesterday's attacks. Now they are working in the regional center. Almost all the houses there have also been powered up," added the head of the Military Administration.

In addition, he said that the Russian army also fired artillery at Nikopol district. It is noted that it was noisy in the district center, Marhanets and Myrovska community. 

Three private houses were damaged there. One outbuilding was destroyed and another one was damaged. Fifty solar panels were smashed. 

Fortunately, no one was killed or injured.

Later, the mayor of Dnipro said that one of the hospitals in the city was being evacuated and schools closed as a result of the Russian attack. 

"Because of the night attack, we are evacuating one of the hospitals, draining the heating system and taking out a large number of palliative care patients. We are also closing schools. According to the forecasts, a cold snap is expected in the near future, and we will not be able to keep the system running," he wrote.
