A thousand people in the building: ten dead in an attack on a shopping center in Kremenchuk

A shopping center in the Ukrainian city of Kremenchuk was reportedly hit by Russian missiles. Around 1,000 people are said to be there at the time. President Selenskyj condemned the attack, his office spoke of 10 dead and 40 injured.

According to Ukrainian sources, Russia attacked a shopping center in the central Ukrainian city of Kremenchuk. The building caught fire. "The occupiers fired rockets at a shopping center where more than a thousand civilians were staying," President Volodymyr Zelenskyy wrote on Telegram. According to civil protection, 115 firefighters with 20 fire engines are deployed. In addition, a fire engine was requested from the railway.

In a video that Zelenskyj spread, the burning building could be seen with thick clouds of dark smoke. According to the deputy head of the presidential office, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, at least ten people have been killed. Another 40 were injured.

"The missile attack on the shopping center with people in Kremenchuk is another war crime committed by the Russians," wrote Poltava Oblast Governor Dmytro Lunin. In the immediate vicinity of the shopping center there is a road construction machinery factory. Ukraine has been fighting off a Russian invasion for more than four months. The United Nations has so far recorded over 4,700 civilian fatalities, but like the government in Kyiv, assumes the number of victims to be far higher.

The city of Kremenchuk had about 200,000 inhabitants before the start of the war. It is located on the Dnieper River, north of the city of Dnipro. The day before, Russian rockets had hit the city of Cherkassy, ​​also on the river, for the first time since the beginning of the war. There were dead and injured. Cherkassy, ​​on the other hand, is about 120 kilometers north of Kremenchuk.
