The three missiles hit an apartment, a migration office and an administrative building in the Novokodatsky district. The shoe factory caught fire after the attack. Valentin Yarmolenko, a public affairs officer with the regional military administration, said there were no military facilities in the area, in which a security guard was killed.
The district prosecutor has begun investigating the attack for possible violations of the law of war. Residents living near the shoe factory said they heard the first explosion at 6:00 am (0400 GMT) and the second at 6:10 am. Then came the third explosion.
Svetlana Kalenchenko, who works next to the shoe factory, said: “We heard a loud explosion and the windows shattered and the roof shattered. When the second explosion occurred, we rushed to the metro to take shelter, but the entrance was also damaged.
Mayor Boris Philativ said in a video statement that the situation was under control and that there were no Russian troops in the city. Dinipro has been considered a safe haven since the Russian invasion of Ukraine on 24 February.
