More than 60 injured, including 12 children, in the Dnipro flat… Rescue work continues in the wreckage
Missiles in 14 days in the capital Kiiue… Damage to infrastructure and 18 houses
Hit northeast Kharkiv… Air raid warning in central and southern cities
(Seoul/Geneva = Yonhap News) Reporter Choi Jae-seo and Reporter Ahn Hee = At least nine people were killed during massive Russian airstrikes in Ukraine, AFP and dpa news outlets reported on the 14th (local time) .
Valentin Leznichenko, governor of Ukraine’s Dnipropetrovsk region, said at least 12 people were killed and 60 others injured in artillery shelling of an apartment complex in Dnipro.
Located about 390 km southeast of the capital Kyiv along the Dnipro River, Dnipro is the fourth largest city in Ukraine after Kyiv, Kharkiv and Odessa.
Among those injured are 12 children, and there is a possibility of additional deaths as rescue operations continue in the wreckage of the collapsed apartment.
According to local media reports, residents of apartments trapped in the rubble are waiting for rescue by sending signals with mobile phone lights.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has called on the West for more weapons to prevent further casualties from “Russian terrorism.”
He emphasized, “Everyone in the world knows what and how to stop those who sow the seeds of death.”
“It is still unknown how many people are under the rubble,” he said. “Unfortunately, the death toll is rising every hour.”
In the morning today, a number of explosions and explosive damage occurred in the capital of Kieu.
Kirilo Tymoshenko, deputy head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, said in a Telegram message that missile strikes occurred on key infrastructure in Kiiu.
Vitaly Klitschko, Mayor of Kiiu, also said: “I heard an explosion in Dniprowsky, in the area to the left of Kiiu.”
He said fragments of missiles had landed in some areas in Kieu, but there were no reports of casualties yet. In the village of Kopiriu, on the outskirts of Kieu, there was also damage in a residential area, including broken windows, Klitschko added.
Kieu Governor Oleksi Kuleva said: “In Kopiriu village and elsewhere, 18 private houses were damaged with broken windows and damaged roofs.”
It was the first time Kiiu had been exposed to airstrikes since the night of January 1, the Associated Press reported.
A missile also fell on Kharkiv, the second-largest city in northeastern Ukraine.
“Russian forces fired two S-300 missiles in Kharkiv’s industrial zone,” Kharkiv Governor Oleg Sinegbow said.
Energy facilities were destroyed in the air, but no injuries were confirmed, said Gov. Sinegbow.
“Current emergency response personnel are working to restore destroyed energy facilities and stabilize power supplies,” he added.
Missile air raid warnings followed one after the other in central and southern cities.
The central city of Cherkasy informed citizens that Russia could launch a missile attack in the late afternoon and ordered them to leave when air raid sirens sounded.
Shortly after news of the air strikes in Kyiu and Kharkiv came out, Governor Vitaly Kim of Mykolaiv Province warned of possible air strikes, saying, “Russian Tupolev strategic bombers have taken off from the air base. “
In addition, Odessa in the south and Lviv in the west also suffered shelling damage.
The Ukrainian Air Force announced that it had intercepted 25 of 38 Russian missiles on the same day.
