According to local media reports, 43 people were injured due to the strikes.

A rescue team comprising 230 people and 57 vehicles are involved in the search and rescue for people from the two buildings damaged in the attack, reports CNN.

Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky confirmed the attacks and wrote on X platform: "Monday morning. Regions of Ukraine are being shelled by the occupiers, who continue to terrorize peaceful cities and people."

" Kryvyi Rih, Kherson. Residential buildings, a university building, a crossroads were hit. Unfortunately, there are dead and wounded. There may be people under the rubble. My condolences to all those who have lost their loved ones because of Russian terror," he said.

He said his officials are trying to save as many people as possible following the attack.

"Deputy Head of the Presidential Office for Regional Policy Oleksiy Kuleba and the RSA heads are already dealing with the situation. In recent days, the enemy has been stubbornly attacking cities, city centers, shelling civilian objects and housing. But this terror will not frighten us or break us. We are working and saving our people," he said.

He also shared videos of the devastation caused by the strikes in the city.

Zelensky earlier said that war is “gradually returning” to Russia, hours after Kremlin alleged Kyiv was targeting Moscow with drones.

A drone was shot down over the Odintsovo district, west of the city centre, and two others were neutralised but crashed into offices, Russia's defence ministry was quoted as saying by BBC on Sunday.

One person was injured due to the blast, reports TASS news agency.
