Quote from Kyrylenko: "Two hours ago, Russian occupants hit a residential building located in the city centre with a missile and completely destroyed it. Rescue workers, law enforcement officers and public utilities are working at the scene to clear the rubble of the destroyed building. It is possible that there may be people under the rubble."

Quote from Zelesnkyy: "An apartment block, a missile attack. Some innocent civilians were killed, others remain under the rubble. This is not history repeating itself – this is a day-to-day reality in our country. A country which territorially borders absolute evil, and which has to defeat this evil in order to bring the likelihood of such tragedies repeating to zero."
