At least four people were killed and 43 injured in a Russian strike on an apartment building in central Ukraine on Monday, according to the country’s Interior Minister.
Russia hit Kryvyi Rig in the morning with two missiles, which destroyed several floors of a residential building, wrote Igor Klymenko on Telegram.
Four people were killed and 43 were injured, he said at midday, adding three residents were rescued and 30 evacuated. A 10-year-old child was among those killed.
The second missile hit a university, according to Klymenko, with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy denouncing “Russian terrorism”.
Speaking to Euronews in July, Dr Jade McGlynn, Research Fellow in War Studies at King’s College London, said Moscow was deliberately “terror bombing” civilians in a bid to demoralise the population and undermine their resolve.
