BREAKING: At least five dead, 27 injured as Russia missile hits flats in Ukraine

The tales of agony and wailing continue in Ukraine as at least five people have died after a Russian missile struck a residential building in Dnipro,.

The region’s governor, Valentyn Reznichenko wrote on Telegram that 27 people have been injured, including six children – all of whom are being treated in hospital.

This comes as missile debris from a Russian strike on western Ukraine has been found in neighbouring Moldova, the country’s interior ministry has said.

Police found the remnants of the strike in Larga, on the border with Ukraine in the north of the country, the ministry wrote on Facebook.

Moldova is a Romanian-speaking republic which borders the west of Ukraine, which itself has a breakaway province – Transnistria – in the west of the country that is economically, politically and militarily supported by Russia, which has an estimated 1,500 soldiers there.

The narrow strip of land between the Dniester river and the Ukrainian border, which broke away from Moldova in 1990, is not recognised by the majority of the international community.



Reacting, Ukraine’s foreign minister urged the G7 and EU to sanction Russia’s missile and drone industry.

Speaking in the aftermath of the latest wave of Russian missile strikes on Ukraine on Saturday, Dmytro Kuleba urged the two organisations to implement the relevant sanctions put forward by his country “without delay”.
