In Dnipro, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy held a meeting on the operational situation in the Dnipropetrovsk region.
Head of the Dnipropetrovsk regional military administration Valentyn Reznichenko noted that the situation in the region is under control.
"There are no hostilities on our territory, but we constantly feel war," he noted.
Russian troops have launched almost 400 strikes at the region, half of which were missile attacks, deliberately targeting civilian infrastructure, enterprises and grain warehouses. The Kryvyi Rih district suffered the most from shelling.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy was informed that as a result of enemy attacks, 313 residential buildings were destroyed and damaged, 25 schools, kindergartens and extra-curricular education centers, and 8 hospitals were ruined.
The Head of the Dnipropetrovsk RMA informed the President about assistance to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Almost 111 million hryvnias were allocated for this from the regional budget. The region has also hosted many wounded - military and civilian - and provides them with all necessary medical assistance.
In addition, the Dnipropetrovsk region sheltered more than 300,000 internally displaced persons. They receive the necessary humanitarian aid and social benefits.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted that during the war, the region became a real humanitarian hub. In particular, almost 1.5 million food kits were sent to six regions suffering from Russian aggression.
During the working trip, the Head of State observed the work of the logistics center for the assembly of humanitarian aid kits and saw how the functioning of this important center was established.
