"A total of four victims were hospitalized. Including a seven-year-old girl who was pulled out from under the rubble, and later her mother was rescued," the mayor said.

The head of the National Police of Ihor Klymenko stated about five wounded and one dead.

"According to available information, one person died. It is currently known about five wounded, including a 7-year-old girl. At that moment, her mother, a 35-year-old woman, was rescued from the rubble. She is a citizen of Russia but has lived in Kyiv for a long time.
