Russia-Ukraine war: At least 11 people were killed in a Russian missile strike on Ukraine on Thursday, citing the Ukrainian State Emergency Services. 11 people were also injured as a result of the strike, reported CNN.
The majority of the damage has been done to housing in the Kyiv region, according to the service’s spokesperson Oleksandr Khorunzhyi, who added that around 100 rescuers are involved in the recovery process following the attack. In a regular briefing on Thursday, the US State Department condemned the attack on Ukraine and expressed sympathy to all those who were injured.
“Last night, as you all saw, Russia launched more missiles across Ukraine…
“On behalf of the United States, I want to express sympathy to all those who have been injured and condolences to the families of those who have been killed across Ukraine,” US State Department Principal Deputy Spokesperson Vedant Patel said.
The (Russia-Ukraine war) attack came after the United States and Germany agreed to supply battle tanks to Ukraine in the midst of the ongoing conflict.
The missile strikes damaged 35 buildings and caused two fires. According to CNN, Khorunzhyi stated that the missiles caused damage in 11 regions across Ukraine.
“The majority of the housing damage is in the Kyiv region,” he added.
“We have connected 88 power generators to provide electricity to social facilities such as hospitals.”
Last week, at least 30 people were killed when Russian missiles struck an apartment building in Dnipro.
The regional governor’s adviser, Natalia Babachenko, said 30 people had been confirmed dead so far, and more than 30 were hospitalised, with 12 in critical condition. She also predicted that 30 to 40 people were still trapped beneath the debris.
According to Al Jazeera, the workers used silence to direct their rescue efforts amid freezing temperatures after hearing screams for help from beneath the rubble of the nine-story apartment building in the east-central Ukrainian city.
Moscow has been bombarding Ukraine’s energy infrastructure with missiles and drones since October, causing widespread blackouts and outages in central heating and running water.
