Kyiv, Oct 5 (EFE).- At least 48 people were killed Thursday in a Russian missile attack on a residential area of a village in the northeastern Ukrainian province of Kharkiv, Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Thursday.
Zelenskyy was in Granada, Spain, Thursday, where he was participating in a European leaders’ summit that will address, among other issues, support for Ukraine in its fight against Russian invading forces.
“A clearly brutal crime by Russia, a missile attack on a food store, a totally deliberate act of terrorism,” Zelenskyy wrote on his Telegram account, along with an image of the aftermath of the attack.
The Ukrainian president said he is meeting with several European leaders in Granada to strengthen Ukrainian anti-aircraft defenses to better protect their towns and cities from similar attacks.
“We must stop Russian terror,” added Zelenskyy, labeling “all those who help Russia to circumvent the sanctions” as “criminals”.
“Russia needs this and similar terrorist attacks for only one thing: to make genocidal aggression the norm all over the world,” he added.EFE
