Russian Missiles strike on Thursday hit a residential complex and a building of Ukraine’s security service in the central Ukrainian city of Dnipro, according to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
According to Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko, five people were injured due to the incident and emergency services completed an apartment-by-apartment search of the area.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian president Zelenskyy blamed “Russian missile terror.”
Dnipro. Friday evening. Multi-story apartment building and a building of the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) hit,” Zelenskyy wrote on the Telegram messaging app. “Again, Russian missile terror.”
Following the incident, he called emergency meetings with the SBU, the interior ministry, the emergency services, and local politicians.
In his post, Zelenskyy made no additional explanations. There needed to be more information available regarding the number of missiles used or whether the security facility was close to the apartments.
It comes after Russia announced on Friday that it had shot down two Ukrainian missiles over its bordering Ukraine’s southern Rostov area.
According to Moscow, 15 people were injured as debris fell on Taganrog, a port city in the south.
The first S-200 missile, according to the Russian defence ministry, was directed against “residential infrastructure” in the roughly 250,000-people city, BBC reported.
Shortly after, it claimed to have shot down a second S-200 missile close to Azov, with the missile’s debris landing in a rural area.
