missile strike on a residential building in Zaporizhzhia has killed at least one and left 25 people in the hospital, Anatolii Kurtiev, acting mayor of the city of Zaporizhzhia, said.

“Unfortunately, one injured person, who was in serious condition, died,” Kurtiev said on Telegram. “According to updated information, 25 people are currently in hospitals. 3 people are in serious condition, 19 are in moderate condition.”

Earlier, the region’s military administration said two Russian missiles hit a residential high-rise building in city Zaporizhzhia. Footage posted to social media Wednesday shows extensive damage and a fire at a residential block in Zaporizhzhia, apparently from a missile strike.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky posted about the attack on the social media app Telegram, saying Russia was “shelling the city with bestial savagery.”
