Three people were killed. 21 were wounded. Four remain in hospital as a result of the enemy’s attack yesterday."

Details: Later, Lysenko added that the rubble of the house hit by the Russian drone was dismantled, and the residents were evacuated: "There is no information (about any people under the rubble – ed.). The State Emergency Service reports that they have already inspected everything today (4 July – ed.) and they can say for sure that there are no people under the rubble, everyone has been evacuated".

According to him, people have been resettled, and now the issue of providing material assistance is being resolved: "We have provided an opportunity to stay in dormitories, many people have moved to stay to their relatives and friends". 

Currently, residents only have partial access to the building.
