The body of a 40-year-old man was extracted from the rubble on the fifth floor of a hostel, according to regional police chief Andril Nebitov. He said more than 20 people had been admitted to hospital and there was no confirmation for others. The Ukrainian General Staff said the Ukrainian Air Force shot down 16 of the 21 drones fired by Russia. Eight of them were killed near the capital. Other drones were dropped in Khmelnitsky province. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky tweeted: “More than 20 Iranian killer drones and missiles were attacked in a single night. Every time someone wants an exercise to listen to world peace in Moscow, another order is given for such criminal attacks.
