The Russian military fired three missiles at the Dnipropetrovsk region this morning, killing ten people and wounding at least 35 others after one missile hit a Ukrainian National Guard base in Dnipro.

Hennadii Korban, head of the Dnipro Territorial Defense, said this on Dnipro TV, Ukrinform reports.

“There was a tragedy in the morning. An Iskander missile struck a National Guard firing range. Unfortunately, about ten people were killed. About 30-35 people were injured. Most of the personnel were scattered throughout the region,” he said.

There could have been more casualties, but according to an order by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, the military does not concentrate more than 20 people in one place.

Korban also noted that the situation is getting worse not only in the region, but also at the front. Invading troops are trying to intensify the offensive primarily in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions. The Dnipropetrovsk region is surrounded by three fronts and therefore air raid alerts and missile strikes are becoming more frequent.

On February 24, Russian President Putin launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops are shelling and destroying critical infrastructure and residential areas of cities, towns and villages in Ukraine, using artillery, multiple rocket launchers and ballistic missiles.
