Russia attacked Dnipro City with ballistic missiles in the evening of July 28, hitting local HQ of Ukraine’s SBU security service and a residential high-rise. Fortunately, none were killed in the strike, with nine people sustaining injuries.

Dnipro regional governor Dmytro Lysak told Ukrainian TV broadcasters that the attack was carried out using two Iskander ballistic missiles.

“According to preliminary data, two Iskanders: one hitting the residential complex, the other – the SBU building.”

He added that many apartments on the top floors of the residential tower were vacant, which fortunately minimized civilian casualties from the attack.

Lysak farther added that the SBU building has been empty for some time, presumably out of safety concerns due to possible Russian strikes just like this one.
