Rescue operation is still conducting in one of the entrances of the nine-story building, which was completely destroyed.


"The occupiers cannot win on the battlefield, so they resort to the vile killing of civilians. After the enemy was knocked out of Zmiinyi Island, they decided to respond by cynically shelling civilian objects. By this, Russia once again confirmed the status of a terrorist country. For them, a recreation base is the same goal as a military base. The goal of the Russian Federation is the literal destruction of Ukraine and our citizens. But we will make every effort to ensure that everyone involved in this flagrant war crime receives the most severe punishment - we will identify not only those who fired the shots but also the specific persons who gave the order," the Head of the SBU Bakanov said.
