    As of this morning, 92 people have been reported injured and 4 killed. As search and rescue operations continue, the number of victims may increase.

    russia continues to target Ukrainian women, children and the elderly. The objects attacked by the russian army were exclusively civilian.

    Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba called on foreign states to respond decisively to another russian terrorist attack by taking a set of measures, which will include, among other things, accelerating the supply of additional air defense systems, combat drones of all types, long-range missiles to Ukraine, making a decision to transfer frozen russian assets for the needs of Ukraine, and terminating contacts with russian diplomats in the respective capitals and international organizations.

    The terrorist regime in moscow must feel that the international community will not turn a blind eye to the killing of Ukrainian civilians and the destruction of Ukraine’s critical infrastructure.
