President: About 10 apartment blocks damaged by missile attack on Uman

In Uman, Cherkasy region, about 10 apartment blocks were damaged as a result of a Russian missile attack on the morning of April 28. In one of them, the entire section was destroyed.

“Last night the enemy attacked Ukraine again with missiles and UAVs. Terrorists targeted civilians and objects. A rocket attack on Uman damaged about 10 apartment buildings. The entire block of one of them was destroyed. People are still trapped under the rubble. Unfortunately, there are casualties, including a child,” President Volodymyr Zelensky posted on Telegram.

He stressed that the terrorist attack claimed the life of a child in Dnipro city.

“My condolences to everyone who lost their loved ones because of the Russian terror! I am grateful to our Air Forces, our anti-aircraft gunners, everyone who helps overcome the consequences of enemy attacks, everyone who protects our people,” the President wrote.

He stressed that “this Russian terror must face a fair response from Ukraine and the world. And it will. Every such attack, every evil act against our country and people brings the terrorist state closer to failure and punishment, not vice versa, as they think. We will not forget any crime, we will not let any invader avoid responsibility.”

As reported, the Russian army launched a missile attack on Ukraine on the morning of April 28.
