Russian military forces destroyed an airport in the Ukrainian city of Dnipro, and five emergency workers were injured.
“There has been another attack on Dnipro airport. There is nothing left of it,” Valentyn Reznichenko, governor of the central Dnipropetrovsk region, said on Sunday.
“The airport itself and the infrastructure around it has been destroyed. Rockets keep flying and flying,” Reznichenko said on Telegram.
With almost 1 million inhabitants, Dnipro has been under the Russian radar since the start of the conflict but had not seen the scale of attacks as other country regions. The city’s airport received heavy damage on March 15th when it was attacked for the first time. Reznichenko said attacks on the town on the banks of the Dnieper River intensified on Sunday and destroyed the airport.
