The relevant statement was made by Dnipropetrovsk Regional Council Head Mykola Lukashuk on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Two enemy missiles hit the regional center. One missile struck a motor transport enterprise, causing damage to about 35 cars within the adjacent territory. Three stalls, several one-storey buildings and hangar were also damaged. The other missile struck an industrial enterprise, having destroyed some structures. The Ukrainian State Emergency Service is now conducting rescue works, dismantling the rubble and searching for survivors,” Lukashuk wrote.
