The governor of the region, Sergiy Lysak, said on Telegram that a five-story building is on fire in Dnipro.

“It is partially destroyed. There may be people under the rubble. So far, six people have been injured,” he added.

He said the upper two floors of the building, located in the centre of Dnipro, were destroyed, adding that there was also damage in another attack in the Kryvyi Rig district, west of Dnipro.

Head of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Council, Mykola Lukashuk, said two people died and 15 were injured following the strike on the building.
