The Russian military attacked the city of Dnipro during the night of Aug. 24 with various weapons from several regions, both in Ukraine and Russia, Air Force spokesperson Yuriy Ihnat said on Ukrainian national television on Aug. 24.
The Russians launched the attack from Rostov Oblast in Russia, from the area of the Russian-occupied town of Tokmak in Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhya Oblast, and from Ukraine’s Russian-occupied Crimea.
"S-300 missiles (were launched from) Tokmak," said Ihnat.
“Usually, the enemy strikes this region with anti-aircraft guided missiles on the ground from there. Two Iskander-M missiles were launched from Rostov Oblast – these are ballistic missiles. An Iskander-K cruise missile was launched from Crimea, which was shot down by our Defense Forces.”
Seven people were injured and a transportation facility was hit in the overnight Russian missile attack on Dnipro. More than ten buildings were damaged in the city, including residential buildings, an administrative building, a hotel, and more.
