In the afternoon of 12 June, Russian occupation forces launched a missile strike on a residential area of Kryvyi Rih, hitting a multi-storey residential building and an administrative structure. After the completion of the rescue operation at the impact site, it was reported that 9 people were killed and 32 injured, including 5 children. The city has declared 14 June a day of mourning for the victims, as reported by Ukrinform.

According to the head of the city’s Defence Council, Oleksandr Vilkul, 13 of the injured from the Russian terrorist strike are currently in hospital, with 5 in serious condition and one in critical condition.

President Volodymyr Zelensky responded to the tragedy in his hometown, emphasizing the urgent need for enhanced air defence. "Every day and every hour, Russian terror proves that Ukraine, together with its partners, must strengthen its air defence. Modern air defence systems can provide maximum protection for people, our cities, and our positions. And we desperately need them."

It should be noted that Kryvyi Rih was not the only target on 12 June. During the night, Russia launched a missile and air strike across Ukraine, using various types of missiles and drones. The Ukrainian Air Force reported shooting down 29 out of 30 targets – one Kh-47M2 "Kinzhal" aeroballistic missile, four Kh-101/Kh-555 cruise missiles, and 24 Shahed-131/136 attack drones. The interception of this attack was complicated by difficult weather conditions in many regions of Ukraine.

Recall that The Gaze reported, based on impressions from The New York Times journalists, that some Ukrainian cities now resemble London, Dresden, or Hiroshima during World War II due to Russia's barbaric military tactics.

A team of journalists and scientists analysed satellite radar data and concluded that Ukraine has lost about 210,000 buildings along the thousand-kilometre front line, as well as structures in the rear. The analysis showed that over 900 schools, hospitals, churches, and other facilities in Ukraine have been destroyed or damaged. Schools suffered the most, with 708 facilities affected, followed by religious buildings (109) and hospitals (106).
