In a statement on Telegram, Dnipropetrovsk Governor Serhiy Lysak said five people, including a child, were killed and 64 others injured in the attack. “Most of the wounded will be treated at home. But more than 20 remain in hospitals,” Lysak added.

In an earlier statement, Lysak said that two were killed and 31 were injured due to the missile strikes, adding that four children were among those injured.

Meanwhile, Ukraine’s General Prosecutor’s Office earlier reported that two people were killed and 25 injured due to a missile strike hitting a high-rise building and an educational institution.

“According to the investigation, on July 31, 2023, the Russian military launched a missile attack on the city of Kryvyi Rih. Enemy rockets hit a high-rise building and an educational institution. According to preliminary data, two people died, and 25 were injured,” the statement said.

Four children were among the victims of the missile strike, the statement said, adding that search and rescue operations are ongoing and the exact number of victims is being established.
