On Jan. 14, during a mass Russian attack on Ukraine, an enemy missile hit a residential building in Dnipro, trapping people under the rubble. At least 230 apartments were damaged, and 72 were completely destroyed.

The Ukrainian Air Force reported that the strike was carried out by an Kh-22 hypersonic missile, which the Armed Forces do not have the means to intercept.

The Security Service of Ukraine has identified the Russian officials involved in the missile attack on the building in Dnipro, and says it is opening war crimes cases against them.
