Russian troops attacked the Dnipro district in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast on April 20, killing a 54-year-old man, local governor Serhii Lysak reported.

According to Lysak, the man was killed while he was repairing a car near the scene of the attack.

The Russian strike also caused a fire, but emergency services extinguished it as of 4:35 p.m. local time.

Dnipropetrovsk Oblast is regularly the target of Russian attacks on civilians.

Russian troops on April 19 carried out a missile attack, hitting the regional center of Dnipro and the Synelnykove district.

The rescue operations in Dnipro ended the next day, with three killed and 24 injured. The five-story building and the railway station in the city's downtown were partially destroyed.

In the Synelnykove district, a total of five, including an 8-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl, were killed, and 10 others were injured due to the recent strike.

Western partners have been deliberating key decisions on military assistance for Ukraine for "too long," President Volodymyr Zelensky said on May 20 in an interview with Reuters. The president described the delivery of aid, particularly badly needed air defense, as "one big step forward, but before that, two steps back."
