During the night of February 23, in the Dnipropetrovsk region, five attack drones were intercepted and destroyed.

Despite these efforts, a high-rise and a business building in Dnipro were hit, resulting in eight people being injured, with some possibly still trapped under the debris.

This was reported by Serhiy Lysak, the head of Dnipropetrovsk OVA, who stated, "Five drones were destroyed by the defenders of the sky this night over the region. Two each - in the Synelnyk and Dnipro districts. One more - in Novomoskovsk.

Unfortunately, it was not possible to avoid being hit. In addition to the high-rise building in Dnipro, the enemy targeted the enterprise.

Of the eight injured in the attack, two remain in the hospital. They are in a moderate condition. The rest will be treated on an outpatient basis.

In the gutted house, the search for people who may be under the rubble is being extended."

Additionally, the Nikopol district did not escape shelling, with Nikopol, Mirivska, and Chervonogrigorivska communities coming under artillery fire.

The attack resulted in damage to two enterprises, three private houses, and farm buildings, as well as disrupted power lines, although no casualties were reported among the residents.
