Dnipro: Russian missiles hit apartment block and security service building

At least nine people have been injured including two children after missiles hit two buildings in the eastern Ukrainian city of Dnipro, officials say.

A building belonging to Ukraine's security services (SBU) was also hit, President Volodymyr Zelensky says.

He blamed "Russian missile terror".

Mr Zelensky posted a video on Telegram showing smoke rising from damaged buildings and a fire at street level.

He said he had convened emergency meetings with the SBU, interior ministry, emergency services and local officials following the incident.

Regional head Serhiy Lysak said that two children, aged 14 and 17, were among the injured. He added that they were being treated at home.

No deaths have been reported following the strike, which happened at 20:30 local time (17:30 GMT) according to Mr Lysak.

The latest strike was the third time the SBU building had been targeted by Russia, according to Dnipro Mayor Borys Filatov.

Both buildings were largely empty, he said, adding that the residential building had recently been completed and units were being put up for sale.
