Russian “large-scale” missile attack on the Ukrainian city of Kryvyi Rih

by admin

An “intensive missile attack” by Russia hit several civilian buildings, including a five-story apartment building, in the city of Kryvyi Rih in central Ukraine, causing deaths, injuries and severe damage to infrastructure, according to local officials.

“There are dead and injured,” Serhiy Leshak, the governor of the Dnipropetrovsk region where Kryvyi Rih is located, said on messaging app Telegram early Tuesday morning.

“Intensified missile attack on Kryvyi Rih,” he said.

Lessack posted a picture of a five-story building with all windows blown out and smoke billowing from some.

Kryvyi Rih is the birthplace of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The city was hit by a Russian missile in December, killing three and wounding at least 13.

The city’s mayor, Oleksandr Vilkol, said earlier on Tuesday that people were likely trapped under the rubble of buildings hit by the latest attack.

Video footage circulating on social media purporting to show the Kryvyi Rih attack showed destroyed apartments, rubble and fires in other areas.

Military officials said the capital, Kyiv, was also attacked early Tuesday, but all missiles headed for the city were destroyed by air defense systems.

“So far there has been no information about casualties or damage,” Serhiy Popko, the head of the Kiev city military administration, said on Telegram.

Attacks have also been reported in the Kharkiv region of eastern Ukraine.
