Ukraine invasion: Fears 70 people, including children, have died in Russian missile attack in Dnipro

It's now feared as many as 70 people, children among them, have died in a Russian missile attack on an apartment block in the Ukrainian city of Dnipro.

Authorities believe a woman rescued after more than a day buried under the rubble is likely to be the last they find alive.

As rescuers negotiate their way around the ruins in Dnipro, it is precarious, painstaking, and painful work. 

The woman who was rescued is the latest face of remarkable survival.

The war in Ukraine has been going on for 11 months, and the eyes and hearts of the country are still struggling to process what's being done to them. 

"I went out into the yard and people just screamed. Children, women, bloody people were walking around, police were everywhere," one person said.

Russia sent a missile crashing into an apartment building on Saturday night that obliterated homes and the happiness they housed.

It was part of a nationwide barrage, unleashing on infrastructure in Kharkiv, Kyiv, and Odesa as well. 

"All assigned objects were hit. The targets of the strike have been achieved," Russia's Defence Ministry has since confirmed. 

But targeting civilians is a war crime and Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky has led the chorus of outrage. 

"The enemy will definitely receive our response on the battlefield. Our warriors will ensure it," he said.

The battle in Dnipro now is to find survivors. Rescuers have already searched through the night and day, and they will again.

While they're digging for the more than 40 people who are still missing, Dnipro Mayor Borys Filatov has warned it is unlikely there will be any more survivors. 

One person in Dnipro said: "This is clearly terrorism, and all this is simply not human. Victory must be won on the battlefield, not among the civilian population."
