Quote: "Missile strikes on Vinnytsia: as of 5 p.m., the bodies of 22 victims were found. Only 6 of them have so far been identified.

To establish the identity of the victims, DNA examinations may be required, so investigators ask direct relatives (native parents and children) of the missing to get in touch and hand over biological samples. I remind you of the hotline numbers: 050-222-03-26 or 59-42-00

The police found two missing persons among the wounded. Unfortunately, one missing person was found among the dead. In total, 39 people remain on the list of missing persons as a result of missile strikes on Vinnytsia."

The strikes damaged more than 50 buildings for various purposes and more than 40 cars.

It is reported that the police resricted and took this area under protection so that law enforcement officers could carefully collect the necessary evidence of Russian Federation’s war crimes and protect the intact premises from possible looters.
