Children among 20 dead after Russia bombs central Ukraine
Kyiv, Jul 14 (EFE).- Russian missile strikes have killed at least 20 people including three children Thursday in the central Ukrainian city of Vinnytsia, far from the heavy fighting in the country’s east, local authorities said.
The Russian military hit the city, located 250 kilometers southwest of Kyiv, with three Kalibr cruise missiles launched from the Black Sea, according to Kyrylo Tymoshenko, the deputy head of Ukraine’s presidential office.
Ukraine’s president Volodymr Zelenskyy said on social media that the strike was an “open terrorist attack.”
Local authorities said the missiles hit an office complex and that the explosions damaged a residential area and sparked a fire that engulfed vehicles on a nearby parking lot.EFE
