    Late on Wednesday, a Russian missile attack on an apartment complex in eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk area resulted in at least three fatalities and 18 injuries.

    Around 9.45 p.m. (1945 GMT), a Russian Iskander-K tactical missile struck an apartment complex in Kramatorsk, Donetsk police reported in a Facebook post. At least eight buildings were damaged, and one was completely destroyed.

    Three bodies had been retrieved from the rubble by 7 a.m. (0500GMT) on Thursday, while two people had been saved alive, according to a separate statement posted on Telegram by the State Emergency Service of Ukraine (DSNS).

    Eight of the 18 persons who were hurt in the attack were hospitalised, according to the report.

    The attack caused the four-story apartment structure to collapse, and numerous surrounding parked automobiles were also totaled, according to the DSNS.

    According to the organisation, more than 180 people are still working on search and rescue missions.

    “History is not being repeated here. This is our nation’s everyday reality, the president of Volodymyr Zelenskyy remarked late on Wednesday on Telegram.

    He said, “A country on the verge of ultimate evil, and a country that must defeat it to stop future tragedies from happening.”​​​​​​​
