At least 4 killed, 43 injured in Russian missile strike in Ukraine’s Kryvyi Rih

At least four people were killed and 43 injured in an overnight Russian missile strike in the city of Kryvyi Rih in Ukraine’s southeastern Dnipropetrovsk region, a local official said Wednesday.

“A woman injured in the attack on Kryvyi Rih died in the hospital at night. A total of four people died. 43 people were injured,” Dnipropetrovsk Governor Serhiy Lysak said in a statement on Telegram early Wednesday.

Lysak said that 12 children were among the injured and that 20 of the injured people remained in medical facilities.

“In the city, more than two dozen high-rise buildings, two kindergartens and schools each, an enterprise, an administrative building, a store, and a warehouse were damaged,” the governor added.

Commenting on the strike, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said on X that rescue efforts in Kryvyi Rih have been completed.

“Every day our cities and villages are subjected to such attacks. Every day, Ukraine loses people to Russian evil. And there can be no pause in support for a day, a week—let alone months—when it comes to protecting lives and simply saving people from terror,” he added.
