On 14 January, Russian troops launched a large-scale missile attack on Ukraine. A missile landed on an apartment building in central Ukraine’s Dnipro, causing its partial collapse. More than 200 flats were destroyed, dozens of people were injured. Residents were flashing phone torch lights to draw attention of rescue missions, were writing SMS, and screaming for help.

According to the Ukrainian military, a Russian X-22 missile built to strike naval aircraft carrier units, which Ukraine’s current air-defence capabilities are unable to down, hit the Dnipro building. “The Russian Armed Forces do not target residential buildings,” the Kremlin claims.
