The president of Moldova, Ukraine's western neighbour, denounced a new wave of Russian attacks on Ukrainian targets on Saturday after missile debris was found just inside the small former Soviet state's border, APA reports citing Reuters.

"Russia’s brutal war against Ukraine directly impacts Moldova again. Moldovan border police found rocket fragments near Larga village in northern Moldova," President Maia Sandu tweeted.

"We strongly condemn today’s intensified attacks of Russia and stand with those who lost loved ones in Dnipro across Ukraine. Peace must prevail."

At least 12 people died when a missile hit an apartment building in the central Ukrainian city of Dnipro.

Moldova's interior ministry earlier said missile debris had been found in the north of the country.

Russia did not immediately comment on the report.
