Russian attack on Dnipro clinic kills 1, injures 15, says Zelenskyy: NPR

A barrage of rockets hit a medical clinic in the eastern Ukrainian city of Dnipro on Friday, killing one and injuring 15, according to the country’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Video and footage from the scene showed smoke billowing from a badly damaged building as rescue workers looked on. In a tweet, Zelenskyy called the attack a “crime against humanity”.

Two children, ages 3 and 6, were among the injured, according to Hromadske, a non-commercial, non-governmental public broadcaster in the region.

On Friday, Ukrainian officials also said they shot down 10 Russian missiles and more than 20 drones targeting their capital, Kyiv, and eastern parts of the country, Reuters reports.

Russia did not immediately comment on the airstrikes, but said the explosion that damaged buildings in the Russian city of Krasnodar on Friday was caused by Ukrainian drones. No casualties were reported.
