1 killed, 10 wounded in Russian missile attack on Ukraine museum

Kyiv, Apr 25 (EFE).- A Russian attack on Tuesday destroyed a museum in the eastern Ukrainian city of Kupiansk, killing a curator and wounding ten others, President Volodymyr Zelensky said.

“We know of a dead museum worker and 10 injured,” Zelensky wrote on Telegram messenger.

The president said more people were under the rubble as the recovery from the shelling continued.

Calling Russia a “terrorist country,” Zelensky said Moscow was “doing everything to destroy Ukraine completely.”

“We must bring Russia to justice, both on the battlefield and with fair court sentences to the terrorists.”

Andriy Yermak, the presidential chief of staff, said the Russian forces fired an S-300 missile to attack the center of the city of Kupiansk in the Kharkiv region.

The missile hit the museum, trapping several people under the rubble.

Several Ukrainian officials, including the president, posted a video of a badly ruined building with broken windows, collapsed walls and roof, and piles of debris surrounding it. EFE
