Governor: two killed in Russian attack on Ukraine’s Dnipro region

At least two people were killed and three were injured in Russia’s attack on the Dnipro region, local governor Serhiy Lysak reports.

The deceased were two men who were killed in the Nikopol district of the region. A total of eight houses, two household outbuildings, a garage, a vehicle, and a power supply line were also damaged.

Ukraine’s Office of Prosecutor general has initiated an investigation on the account of violating warfare rules and customs, as well as wilful murder.

In the early hours of 9 March, Russian forces executed a massive missile attack on the energy infrastructure and civilian facilities of Ukraine. Local authorities have reported 11 victims so far — five people were killed in the Lviv region, four in the city of Kherson, and two in the Dnipro region. At least two people have been injured.

Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny reported that, in total, Russian forces had launched 81 missiles and eight Shahed kamikaze drones. Ukraine’s air defence, together with other divisions of the Ukrainian military, destroyed 34 cruise missiles and four drones.

Ukraine’s energy company Energoatom reported that the Zaporizhzhia NPP had lost all of its power because of the Russian strikes.

Russia’s Ministry of Defence confirmed to have carried out the massive missile attack on Ukraine and has referred to it as a “massive retaliatory strike”.

The US-based Institute for the Study of War stated that the recent attack was the largest missile strike across Ukraine of 2023 and likely only served Russian state propaganda objectives.
