Russia Bombs Ukrainian Shopping Centre With 1,000 People Inside
A shopping mall hit by a Russian missile strike, in Kremenchuk, Poltava region, Ukraine June 27, 2022.A Russian missile has hit a shopping centre in Ukraine which had more than 1,000 people inside on Monday.The attack hit the central Ukrainian city of Kremenchuk in what appears to a renewed effort from Russia to conquer the neighbouring country.Authorities are yet to confirm the final number of dead, but at least two are said to have died and around 20 are hurt. Nine have serious injuries.In a Telegram post, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that the number of victims was “unimaginable”, and those the target posed “no threat to the Russian army”.He said Russia was sabotaging “people’s attempts to live a normal life, which makes the occupiers so angry”.The blast was so intense it reportedly blew out most windows in surrounding apartment blocks and the cars below.A local resident Valentina Vitkovska told PA: “Everything is now destroyed. We are the only people left living in this part of the building. There is no power.“I can’t even call to tell others what has happened to us.”Zelensky’s social media confirms 1000+ inside building. “It is useless to hope for decency and humanity from Russia,” the message reads. https://t.co/ZZVEEl7lB0— Oliver Carroll (@olliecarroll) June 27, 2022The Russian Armed Forces have been condemned by the international community since launching the invasion of Ukraine back in February, particularly due to its attacks on innocent Ukrainian civilians.It has subsequently been accused of committing war crimes, although the Kremlin has repeatedly denied the claims.This latest attack comes the day after Russia attacked the capital of Kyiv for the first time in weeks, as the Kremlin tries to ramp up its invasion efforts yet again.It has so far failed to secure any significant victories more than five months into the invasion. But Zelenskyy’s office confirmed at least six civilians had been killed at 31 injured in the last 24 hours all over the country.As of June 23 – before this latest onslaught – the UN confirmed 4,677 Ukrainian civilians had been killed due to the invasion, with a further 5,829 injured.Related...Global Food Crisis Would Continue For Years After War Ends – Western Officials WarnMore 'Chatter' About Vladimir Putin's Health In Russia, Say Western OfficialsWhy UK's Defence Chief Thinks Russia Has Still 'Strategically' Lost Despite 'Tiny Gains'
