An overnight missile strike on the city of Zaporizhzhia damaged several dozen buildings in the residential area. Five private homes were destroyed and a nine-story apartment building partially collapsed.

13 people were killed and 89 victims, including 11 children, sought medical help. Ten people were rescued from under the rubble.

The city was shelled with four Х-22 rockets and two Х-59, launched from the planes, and 16 missiles from the S-300 missile system, the Air Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reports.

“Zaporizhzhia again. Merciless strikes on peaceful people again. On residential buildings, just in the middle of the night,” said Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the President of Ukraine. “Savages and terrorists. From the one who gave this order to everyone who fulfilled this order. They will bear responsibility. For sure. Before the law and before people.”
