Russian troops carried out a missile attack on the city of Dnipro on June 28, damaging a nine-story building, Governor Serhii Lysak said.

At least one person was killed, and 12 others were injured, including a seven-month-old girl, Lysak reported. A pregnant woman is among the six hospitalized.

At least five people are reportedly missing as a result of the attack, Lysak added.

The number of casualties can increase as the rescue operation is ongoing.

President Volodymyr Zelensky shared photos showing four destroyed floors. He urged partners to provide Ukraine with more air defense systems.

"That is why we constantly remind all our partners: only sufficient quantity and quality of air defense systems, only sufficient determination of the world can stop Russian terror. We need these solutions, we need a reliable air shield for Ukraine," Zelensky said.

People are trapped in their apartments, Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko said. One man was rescued from a car which was covered with debris, he added.

Dnipro, Ukraine's fourth-largest city located in central-eastern Ukraine, has served as a key logistics and humanitarian hub during the full-scale war.

Russian forces have carried out a number of deadly attacks against the city and the surrounding region since 2022.

The attack on downtown Dnipro on the morning of April 19 partially destroyed a five-story building and damaged the railway station. Three people were killed and 24 injured, according to the State Emergency Service.
