The number of casualties from the Russian missile strike on Dnipro during the night of August 24 has risen to 10 people, according to the head of the Dnipro Regional Military Administration, Serhii Lysak.

Three people are currently in the hospital – a 55-year-old woman and two men aged 33 and 48. They are in moderate condition.

"In the photo is the only thing the 'Russian peace' is capable of. Destroying everything it touches. This is the appearance of a transportation object that terrorists targeted at night," wrote Lysak.
