A Russian attack on a military base in the central Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk on Friday morning killed at least a dozen people and wounded more than 30, local defense officials said.
Gennady Korban, the regional head of the National Guard, told local Ukrainian media that “Iskander missiles hit a National Guard training center this morning. People were killed. Unfortunately, about 10 people were killed and 30 to 35 were injured.” .
Dinipro in central Ukraine has been spared the brunt of the damage caused by Russian forces in the more than three-month-long war, and the city has been a hotbed of displaced Ukrainians fleeing the war even earlier.
The region’s governor, Valentin Reznitchenko, had earlier said Friday’s strike had called for “severe destruction” and that rescuers were searching for people under the rubble of damaged buildings.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said earlier this week that the May 17 attack came after a Russian attack on a Ukrainian military base north of the capital Kiev killed 87 people.
