Dnipro. The death toll from a Russian missile attack on a residential building in the southeastern Ukrainian city of Dnipro rose to 29 on Sunday. At the same time, Ukrainian rescue workers continued to struggle to extract living people from the rubble. A Russian missile had landed on the building the day before. According to the city government, emergency services personnel continued to search through the debris of the multi-story building into the cold night.

According to the Associated Press-Frontline War Crimes Watch Project, this is the highest number of civilian casualties in a single location after September 30. Several towns in Ukraine were attacked by the Russians on Saturday. The capital Kyiv and the northeastern city of Kharkiv were also targeted, ending two weeks of calm in Ukraine’s energy infrastructure and urban centers. Russia agreed to fire the missile on Sunday, but did not mention the Dnipro residential building.

According to General Valery Zaluzhny, Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Russia fired 33 cruise missiles on Saturday, 21 of which were shot down. Cranes were used to rescue people trapped in the upper floors of a residential building in the city of Dnipro. About 1,700 people lived in this building. Some people asked for help by turning on the flashlight on their cellphones.

President Volodymyr Zelensky said at least 73 people were injured and 39 people were rescued by Sunday afternoon. The Dnipro government said Sunday afternoon that 43 people were missing. On Sunday, rescuers in Ukraine struggled to pull survivors from the rubble of a residential building in the southeastern city of Dnipro.
