Mayor says chances of further survivors of Dnipro strike in Ukraine war slim

After a Russian missile hit an apartment building in the eastern Ukraine city of Dnipro on Saturday, the city’s mayor issued a strong warning that there may be no survivors.

According to local authorities, the attack left him with 30 dead and 44 missing.

Dnipro mayor Boris Filatov said the chances of finding survivors were “limited”.

Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed on state television in Moscow that the military operation was proceeding according to plan.

The attacks, which Moscow said were aimed at Ukraine’s military and energy infrastructure on Saturday, also affected Kyiv, Kharkov and Odessa. The entrance to the nine-story building was devastated in Dnipro, leaving many floors in smoldering ruins.

Filatov said 10 out of about 70 people who needed medical help were in a “bad situation.”

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki called the rocket attack “inhumane” and said “Russia continues to deliberately commit war crimes against civilians.”

In a speech on state television, Putin said: “Everything is going within the plan of the Ministry of Defense and the General Staff.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky condemned the “cowardly silence” of the Russian public over the incident in a speech Sunday evening. He also said he has received many letters of condolence from all over the world.

Before returning to English, he spoke in Russian to people who “still couldn’t utter a single word condemning this terrorism.” Your attempts to “wait and see” out of cowardice will only lead to the reality that the same terrorists will come after you.

He said two children were orphaned and a 15-year-old girl died.

The latest Russian attack on Ukraine’s power grid occurred two weeks ago. Zelensky claimed on Saturday that power infrastructure in the Kharkiv and Kyiv regions was severely damaged.

After the attack, Ukrenergo, Ukraine’s state-owned energy company, briefly introduced his 24-hour consumption cap across the country. According to Ukraine’s Energy Minister German Garshchenko, the next few days will be “difficult”.

On Sunday, NATO Commander Jens Stoltenberg said Ukraine may hope for more supplies of heavy weapons from the West.

According to Stoltenberg, “The recent pledges for heavy equipment are very important and we expect to see more in the near future.”

To “push back the Russian forces”, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said his country would supply the Kyiv army with Challenger 2 tanks the same day Russia launched the missile strike.

Russia argued that providing more weapons to Ukraine would lead to increased Russian military activity and civilian casualties.
