The number of injured in a Russian missile attack against Dnipropetrovsk Oblast's Pavlohrad district on Dec. 8 has risen to eight, Governor Serhii Lysak reported.

One person has been confirmed dead as Russia attacked Ukraine with 19 cruise missiles in the morning strike.

The victims include men aged between 32 and 66. Two of them are recovering at home; the rest are in hospital, Lysak said.
