Near nuclear plant, Russian rockets target Ukrainian city
There were two missile attacks on Zaporizhzhia on Thursday by Russia that hit apartment blocks and killed one man. The city is located near Europe's largest nuclear plant and at least five people are trapped, according to the governor of the region mainly occupied by the Russians.
After Ukraine's president announced that three more villages had been retaken from Russia in a region it illegally annexed, Russia launched two missile strikes, one before dawn and one in the morning. This was the latest battlefield defeat for Russia.
A 3-year-old girl was taken to a hospital for treatment after being rescued from the multi-story buildings by Governor Oleksandr Starukh's Telegram channel.
“The terrorist country has shown its beastly face by converting defense weapons into offensive weapons and killing peacefully sleeping people,” Starukh wrote.
As a result of the latest Russian attacks in Dnipro, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, the deputy head of the Ukrainian president's office, said that 10 people had been killed.
