On April 19, the Russian occupiers launched a combined attack on Ukraine, using almost 40 missiles and drones. Dnipropetrovsk region suffered the most.

This was reported by RBC-Ukraine.


Some of the enemy targets were shot down by Ukrainian air defense forces. 11 out of 16 missiles and 9 out of 10 Shaheds were destroyed. In total, 8 people were killed, including two small children, and 25 were wounded in the Russian missile attack on Dnipro region.

  • Dnipro: a multi-storey residential building in the city center was hit. A fire broke out there. Two infrastructure facilities were damaged. UZ says that the enemy targeted their facilities. The city's railway station suspended operations for a while. Currently, there are 24 injured and 2 dead in Dnipro (7 wounded and one dead among the railroad workers).
  • Kryvyi Rih: a shell hit an infrastructure facility in the city, causing a fire. 3 people were injured.
  • Synelnykove district: more than 10 private houses were damaged. Fires broke out and were extinguished. 6 people died, including children aged 6 and 8. Another 7 people were injured.
  • Pavlohrad: one of the enterprises was damaged.

President Volodymyr Zelensky reacted to the attack and called on partners to provide more air defense equipment. He emphasized that "air defense should not be in warehouses, but in real cities and communities".

"Russia must be held accountable for its terror, and every missile, every Shahed must be shot down. The world can guarantee this, our partners have the necessary capabilities. This has been proven in particular in the skies of the Middle East, and it should work in the skies of Europe," Zelensky said.

In his turn, the head of the Presidential Office, Andriy Yermak, noted that only force can stop Russian terror.

"Dnipro. Civilians killed and wounded. A strike on a residential building in the city center. Terror. Only force will stop terror. The collective strength of the democratic world," Yermak said.
