World leaders condemn Russian attack on Ukraine shopping centre

The Guardian says WORLD LEADERS have denounced Russia’s deadly strike on a shopping centre in the Ukrainian city of Kremenchuk as “abominable” and a war crime.

The search for survivors continues after the missile strike on a mall that had more than 1,000 people in it at the time, according to Ukraine’s president, Volodoymyr Zelenskiy.

The Ukrainian defence ministry said the strike was deliberately timed to coincide with the mall’s busiest hours and cause the maximum number of casualties.

Eighteen people are known to have been killed, according to Ukraine’s emergency services, and Serhiy Kruk, the head of Ukraine’s state emergency service, said 59 had been injured. At least 36 people were still believed to be missing, Ukrainian prosecutors told the Guardian at the scene.
