“There were eight missile strikes in total. The missiles hit different places in the city, including the territory of the private sector. One missile hit a five-story residential building. The rescue operation is ongoing. Rescuers are working on the spot. One person was pulled out from under the rubble alive, doctors provide the necessary assistance.

According to him, it is not known how many people could be in the house at the time of the impact, because no one keeps a record of the people who remained in the city.
“From the first day of a full-scale war, I have been asking you to leave the city. According to our estimates, more than half of the inhabitants have already left the city. We hope that at the time of the impact there was a minimum number of people in the house, that they had evacuated in advance. The rescue operation will be carried out until the end of the debris clearing” – recalled Senkevich.
