Quote from Lysak: "The explosion rang out in the Pidhorodne hromada [a hromada is an administrative unit designating a town, village or several villages and their adjacent territories – ed.] in the Dnipro district.


A two-story residential building was damaged. People remain under the rubble.

Previously, there are six injured civilians, among them a 6-year-old boy. All are hospitalised in moderate condition.

Two fires broke out, firefighters are putting out the flames. The rescue unit was also mutilated."


Update: Volodymyr Zelenskyy, President of Ukraine, has reported that Russian forces attacked Dnipro and hit an area between two two-story residential buildings. There are people under the rubble.

"Once again, Russia proves it is a terrorist country. The Russians will bear responsibility for everything they committed against our state and people," he wrote.

Later, Serhii Lysak reported that a man was pulled out from under the rubble of the house; there are still people there.

The number of injured rose to 13 people, including 3 children: boys aged 6, 11 and 15.

"Almost all the injured are hospitalised. Their condition is of medium severity. One person will be treated on an outpatient basis. The victims have traumatic brain injury, shrapnel wounds, bruises," the head of the Oblast Military Administration said.
