Russia has carried out an air strike on central Ukraine after US President Joe Biden announced a $1 billion military aid to Ukraine. There are reports of civilian casualties in this attack. At least 13 civilians were killed in the Russian attack, AFP news agency quoted the Dnipropetrovsk region governor as saying.
At least 13 civilians were killed in central Ukraine’s Dnipropetrovsk on Wednesday after Russian forces struck the region, reported Kyiv Post. “It was a terrible night. 11 people were killed,” Valentin Reznichenko wrote on Telegram. He added in a later post that two more people had died of their injuries overnight. “I am asking and begging you… Don’t let the Russians kill you,” he said. “Administrative buildings were damaged: high-rise buildings, a school, a cultural palace, a city council building,” he said. “In the town, the power line has been cut. Several thousand people are without electricity.”
In fact, on Monday itself, the US had announced more military aid to Ukraine. The largest supply of rockets, ammunition and other weapons will be delivered directly to Ukraine’s armed forces from the US Department of Defense.
