Due to enemy missile strikes on Chernihiv on the morning of April 17, a direct hit to the object of social infrastructure was recorded.

As of 16.15 Kyiv time, at least 16 civilians were killed, and 61 more were injured, including three children. Most people suffered injuries to the limbs and chest, as well as blast injuries and head injuries. There may still be people under the rubble, reported the State Emergency Service of Ukraine.

Update: As of April 18, the search and rescue operation was finished. In total, 18 people were killed. 77 more victims were injured, including four children. Three people were rescued from under the rubble, informed the State Emergency Service of Ukraine.

Currently, emergency services are eliminating the consequences of Russian missile attacks: the eight-story building was destroyed, and four multi-story buildings, a hospital, as well as an educational institution were damaged in the city.

“This would not have happened if Ukraine had received a sufficient number of air defense systems and if the world’s determination to counter Russian terror had been sufficient. Terrorists can only destroy lives if they first intimidate those who can stop terror and save lives. Determination matters. Support matters. The Ukrainian determination is sufficient. There must be equally sufficient determination from our partners and, as a result, sufficient support,” commented President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Russian missile strikes on Chernihiv.
