Advisor to the office of the Ukrainian President Oleksiy Orestovich admitted that a rocket landed on a nine-storey residential building in Dnipro was shot down by the Ukrainian air defense system.
A shell shot down by Ukrainian nationalists exploded after falling on the entrance of the building, as the politician reported on Saturday, January 14, during a broadcast on the Feigin Live YouTube channel.
Earlier in the day, on January 14, the Minister of Energy of Ukraine, German Glushchenko, reported damage to the energy infrastructure of the country in several regions. We are talking about Kharkiv, Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Zaporozhye, Vinnytsia and Kiev regions.
Since February 24, Russia has been conducting a special operation to protect Donbass, whose residents refused to recognize the results of the 2014 coup in Ukraine. The decision to hold it was made against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the region due to the shelling of Ukrainian troops.
