The Russian missile strikes on Ukraine in the early hours of Friday morning left the citizens of Uman and Dnipro reeling. While the Ukrainian air defense system managed to intercept most of the 23 cruise missiles and two drones, two cities were still hit, causing significant destruction and loss of life.

In Uman, 17 civilians, including three children, were killed, and 18 were injured. The attack devastated a building with 46 apartments, of which 27 were completely destroyed. Ukrainian officials confirmed that the rescue operation continues in search of survivors, but 17 civilians have already been confirmed dead.

In Dnipro, a 31-year-old woman and her 2-year-old child died. According to Serhii Lysak, governor of the Dnipropetrovsk region, the woman had moved to her parents’ house in search of safety during the war, only to see her family’s house reduced to ashes.

The missile strikes have sparked anger and outrage among Ukrainians. President Volodymr Zelensky expressed his grief. Ukraine has also appealed for international support and assistance to counter Russian aggression.

The devastating impact of the missile strikes on the citizens of Uman and Dnipro highlights the human cost of conflict and aggression. As Ukrainian officials work to clear the rubble and search for survivors, the world watches with a heavy heart, hoping for a peaceful resolution to the ongoing conflict.

    If biden had used the power of the United States he could have had a peaceful resolution of this war put into place ages ago . However , instead of grinding out a peace treaty biden went with the War mongers in the swamp and began sending enough military hardware to keep this conflict going indefinitely ! THIS WAR WOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED IF PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS STILL IN OFFICE !

      Trump never got Russia to withdraw troops during his 4 year team.
      Trump never got Russia to stop forcibly deporting Ukrainians during his 4 year team.
