A rescue operation in Kramatorsk is continuing Thursday morning after a Russian missile hit a residential neighborhood in the eastern Ukrainian city Wednesday night, killing at least three people according to a local military official.
Eight people were wounded and at least two more may be in the rubble from the attack, Pavlo Kyrylenko, head of the Donetsk regional military administration..
“According to operational information, there may be at least two more people under the rubble,” Kyrylenko said.
“This crime of the Russian occupiers against the civilian population is yet another evidence that it is extremely dangerous to stay in the Donetsk region, or for those who have left for other regions of Ukraine to return.”
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky earlier condemned the strike and expressed condolences to the victims.
