During the combined attack, Dnipro city and region suffered the most. The occupiers killed eight people: two adults in Dnipro and four adults and two children (a 14-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy) in Synelnykove.

Dnipro Mayor Borys Filatov said that Russians hit a residential building with an X-22 missile. "Using such missiles to shell cities and residential buildings is a deliberate war crime," Filatov emphasized. According to him, the Russians hit a house at 118 Peremohy Street in January 2023 with such a missile, killing 46 people. An X-22 was also launched at the Amstor shopping center in Kremenchuk in June 2022, killing 21 people.


In total, 5 more high-rise buildings and 2 private houses, 3 educational institutions, 7 administrative and office buildings, a market, shops and trade pavilions, a hotel, and a service station were damaged in Dnipro. Almost fifty cars were also damaged.

After another bloody attack by the occupiers, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on the world to defeat Russian terror. He emphasized that Ukraine needs air defense. "Russia must be responsible for its terror, and every missile, every Shahed must be shot down. The world can guarantee this, our partners have the necessary capabilities. This has been proven, in particular, in the skies of the Middle East, and it should work in the skies of Europe," Zelenskyy summarized.


As a result of the missile strike, mourning for the victims will be announced tomorrow, April 20, in Dnipro.
