Valentyn Reznichenko, the head of the Dnipropetrovsk regional military administration, said the airport in the east-central Ukrainian city of Dnipro had been destroyed in a Russian strike, without providing extensive details.
“And one more attack on the airport in Dnipro,” he said “There is nothing left of it already. The airport and the infrastructure nearby have been destroyed. But rockets keep flying.”
Reznichenko said information about casualties was being clarified.
The airport was hit previously by Russian forces. Reznichenko said on March 15 that a Russian missile strike had put the runway out of use and damaged a terminal building.
Lesia Vasylenko, a Ukrainian MP, said on Twitter that the latest strike “leaves no infrastructure and destroys everything around the airport. Such a shame, as the airport was completely renovated just last year. All the investments and all the efforts completely wrecked.
