Officials stated on Sunday that a 50-year-old man and his 11-year-old daughter were killed after Russian missiles attacked a residence in the southern Ukrainian city of Zaporizhzhia.

It was the latest Russian attack on civilian infrastructure in Ukraine as the Russian invasion enters its second year.

“The enemy carried out a missile attack on Zaporizhzhia and killed another Ukrainian family,” the head of the State Emergency Service, Sergiy Kruk, said on social media.

The girl died in an ambulance, said the head of Zaporizhzhia City Council, Anatoliy Kurtiev.

Rescue crews rescued the girl’s 46-year-old mother from beneath the wreckage.

According to the State Emergency Service, her elder daughter was not at home when the Russians struck at night.

Kurtiev stated that two Russian missiles targeted a residential building, causing windows and roofs in dozens of nearby homes to be destroyed.

Zaporizhzhia is one of four Ukrainian provinces claimed by Russian President Vladimir Putin to have been annexed last year.
