At least 10 people have been killed and 40 others injured after Russian missiles hit a shopping mall in Kremenchuk in central Ukraine.
Video posted by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Telegram showed the mall in flames as large black clouds of smoke rose into the air. Zelensky wrote that over 1,000 civilians were inside the mall at the time of the attack, which could potentially result in the most fatal missile strike since the war began in February.
“It is on fire, and rescue workers are trying to put out the fire. The number of victims is impossible to imagine,” Zelensky said, according to an English translation. “It posed no threat to the Russian army. No strategic value. People only wanted to live a normal life, which is what angers the occupiers so much.”
