The airport in the central Ukrainian city of Dnipro has been completely destroyed in fresh Russian shelling, says a local official.

“There has been another attack on Dnipro airport. There is nothing left of it. The airport itself and the infrastructure around it has been destroyed. Rockets keep flying and flying,” the head of the city’s military administration, Valentin Reznichenko, writes on Telegram.

He adds that authorities are seeking to clarify information about victims. Reznichenko says attacks on the city, which lies on the banks of Dnieper River, intensified today.
