The regional governor confirmed on Friday that a Russian missile strike on a medical facility in the central Ukrainian city of Dnipro resulted in the deaths of at least two individuals, while 23 others sustained injuries.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky condemned the missile attack, targeting a psychological clinic and a veterinary clinic, as a “crime against humanity.”
Expressing his outrage on Twitter, he denounced the act as an indication of an “evil state” engaging in senseless violence, The Hill reported.
He asserted that there could be no military justification for such an attack and referred to it as pure Russian terror.
Zelensky emphasized that Russia willingly chose the path of evil and would not relinquish it easily. He pledged to combat terrorism and expressed unity between Ukraine and the free world in this endeavor.
According to Area Governor Serhiy Lysak, as communicated through Telegram, a 69-year-old man lost his life in the assault, and the body of another individual was discovered amidst the wreckage of the veterinary clinic.
Lysak further disclosed that among the injured were at least two young children aged 3 and 6.
