ISTANBUL (AA) — At least six people were killed and 69 others injured on Monday due to a Russian missile strike on the city of Kryvyi Rih in southeastern Ukraine's Dnipropetrovsk region.

"As of 19:00 (1600GMT), search and rescue operations at two locations have been completed. A total of 6 people died, including one child born in 2013. 69 people were injured, including 6 children," Andriy Yermak, the head of the Ukrainian Presidential Office, said on Telegram.

Dnipropetrovsk Governor Serhiy Lysak had said in a previous statement on Telegram that 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.

Before that, Lysak had said that at least four children were among the injured.

Meanwhile, Ukraine’s General Prosecutor’s Office earlier reported that a missile strike had hit 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.

It added that search and rescue operations were ongoing and that the exact number of victims was being established.

"In recent days, the enemy has been stubbornly attacking cities, city centers, shelling civilian objects and housing. But this terror will not frighten us or break us. We are working and saving our people," Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said on Telegram.

Russian officials have not yet commented on the strikes.
