A Russian missile on Friday morning struck a medical facility in the central Ukrainian city of Dnipro, killing two and injuring 23 including two children, officials said.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy posted a video of smoke billowing from roofless buildings with blown-out windows.

“There are 23 injured in Dnipro,” the head of the regional military administration Sergiy Lysak wrote on Telegram, after several buildings were hit.

“A 69-year-old man died. He was just passing by when a Russian terrorist missile hit the city...”

Zelenskyy said that with a strike on a medical facility, “Russian terrorists once again confirm their status of fighters against everything humane and honest.”

Lysak said the injured included two boys aged three and six, who have been hospitalized along with 19 others.

Local media posted video footage of rescuers helping people with blood on their faces escape from the clinic through corridors full of rubble.

The three-story building was partially destroyed and a fire spread over 1,000 square meters, Lysak wrote on Telegram, posting a video of firefighters aiming hoses at the smoking rubble.

Lysak said earlier that the Dnipropetrovsk region was “massively attacked” overnight “with rockets and drones.”

In the city of Dnipro, overnight shelling set fire to a house and damaged two others, he said.
