The Russian occupiers struck the Dnipro-based Pivdennyi machine-building plant (Pivdenmash) during a massive missile attack on Ukraine on 17 November.

Ukraine’s Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal announced this in a statement, the CFTS portal reports.

"Missiles are flying over Kyiv right now. They are currently bombing our gas production facilities, our enterprises in Dnipro, Pivdenmash," the prime minister said.

As the CFTS portal previously reported, the Russian Federation launched another massive missile attack on Ukrainian cities on 17 November. In particular, two infrastructure facilities in Dnipro were reportedly hit.

Pivdenmash is a manufacturer of aerospace equipment. The Tatra-Yug company tram production facilities are also on the territory of Pivdenmash.
