A barrage of rockets hit a medical clinic in the eastern Ukrainian city of Dnipro on Friday, killing one and injuring 15, according to the country’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Video and images of the scene showed smoke pouring out of a badly damaged building, with rescue workers looking on. In a tweet, Zelenskyy called the attack a “crime against humanity.”

Two children, aged 3 and 6, were among the wounded, according to Hromadske, a non-commercial, non-governmental public broadcaster in the region.

Ukrainian officials on Friday also said they shot down 10 Russian missiles and over 20 drones aimed at their capital city, Kyiv, and the country’s eastern regions, Reuters reports.

Russia did not immediately comment on the air strikes, but did say that a blast that damaged buildings in the Russian city of Krasnodar on Friday was caused by Ukrainian drones. There were no reported casualties.
