DNIPRO, Ukraine — Dozens of first responders scrambled through a huge pile of rubble in the wreckage of an apartment block Saturday, searching for survivors in the aftermath of an attack that killed at least five people and injured about 40. Ukrainian officials blamed a Russian missile strike. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky shared a video of the destruction and vowed to find and punish “everyone involved” in the strike.
Other cities across Ukraine reported explosions Saturday after a morning attack in the capital that awoke residents before air sirens could be heard. Ukraine’s air force said the first Kyiv attack was “most likely” conducted by Russian ballistic missiles. .

Ukraine liberated Kherson city. Now, Russia is destroying it: Residents of the port on the Black Sea “say that now that their city is back under Ukrainian control, they face a painful reality: If Russia can no longer have the city, it seems hellbent on destroying it,” Siobhán O’Grady and Anastacia Galouchka write from Kherson.
Russian forces have hit medical facilities in Kherson at least five times since early December, and in recent weeks, have also struck a market, a museum and many homes, they report.
