Russian missile hit on an apartment building in Dnipro on Saturday. The mayor of the Ukrainian city has warned that there may be no survivors.

According to local officials, 30 people were killed in the incident, while another 44 are still missing.

Borys Filatov, mayor of Dnipro, said there was a “limited” prospect of finding anyone else alive.

Russian President Vladimir Putin stated on public television in Moscow that military activities were proceeding as planned.

On Saturday, Kyiv, Kharkiv, and Odesa were also attacked.

The deadly Dnipro strike impacted the entrance of a nine-story structure, converting many floors to smoldering wreckage.

Mr. Filatov added that roughly 70 persons required medical treatment and of those 10 were “in a terrible state”.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki termed the missile strikes “inhuman”.

“Russia willfully insists on committing war crimes against civilians”. He added.

Speaking on state TV, Mr. Putin said “everything is developing within the parameters of the plan of the ministry of defense and the general staff”.

In his evening address on Sunday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he had received numerous expressions of sympathy from around the world and denounced Russia’s “cowardly silence” in the aftermath of the attack.

Switching to Russian during his statement, he said he wanted to address those “who even now could not utter a few words of condemnation of this terror”.

“Your cowardly silence, your desire to ‘wait it out,’ will only result in the fact that these same terrorists will come after you one day.”

Statement of Nato chief Jens Stoltenberg on the Dnipro strike

Nato Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg warned on Sunday that Ukraine should expect further heavy armament delivery from Western countries.

“Recent pledges for heavy military weapons are significant, and I anticipate more in the near future,” Mr Stoltenberg told the journalists.

Russia’s missile barrage came on the same day that UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak stated his government will supply Challenger 2 tanks to Kyiv’s armed forces in an attempt to assist “push Russian troops back”.

In reaction, Moscow stated that supplying more weaponry to Ukraine will result in more Russian actions and civilian losses.
