Hopes fade for survivors of Dnipro missile strike as number of dead reaches 35

There are few survivors left in Dnipro, a southeastern Ukrainian city. This is just a day after the building was struck by a major Russian missile.

Threety-five people were confirmed dead, including two children. Valentyn Reznichenko (the Dnipropetrovsk region governor) said Monday that 75 more were injured, 14 of them children.

35 people are still missing, believed to be trapped beneath the debris of the nine-storey block. Borys Filatov, the mayor of the city was skeptical about the chances of finding more survivors.

According to Mr Filatov, “The chances of saving people right now are very slim,” he told Reuters news agency. “I believe the number of people who will die is in the hundreds.”


He stated that the block had two stairwells, which included dozens of flats, and they were destroyed. The search continues.

According to Ukraine’s air force, the missile struck the block with a Russian Kh-22 rocket. This antiquated weapon is well-known for being inaccurate and Ukraine does not have the necessary air defenses to take it down. This Soviet-era missile was designed to destroy warships during the Cold War.
