For the 1st time since start of invasion, airstrikes target Dnipro in central Ukraine

Three Russian airstrikes were reported early Friday in the central Ukrainian city of Dnipro, killing at least one person, Ukraine's state emergency service said.

This is the first attack on a civilian target in the city since the start of the Russian invasion, ITV's Dan Rivers reports, with the strikes hitting near a kindergarten and apartment building. Ukrainian officials on Sunday said Russian forces were preparing to encircle Dnipro, an industrial hub on the Dnieper River.
