At the time of the missile attack there was a memorial service taking place at the café, state broadcaster Suspilne cited Ukraine’s Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko said around 60 residents were in the immediate blast areas.

He said, “One person from each family, from each yard, was present at the memorial dinner.”
