G7, UN condemn ‘deplorable’ Russian attack on Kremenchuk mall

The leaders of the G7 have condemned a deadly Russian missile attack on a crowded Ukrainian shopping centre as an “abominable” war crime.

In a statement on Monday, the G7 leaders, who are holding a meeting in Germany, promised that Russian President Vladimir Putin and those responsible for the attack would be held to account.

At least 18 people were killed in the raids on the city of Kremenchuk, while 59 were wounded, SIA reports quoting foreign media.

“Indiscriminate attacks on innocent civilians constitute a war crime,” the G7 statement said.

Ukraine accused Russia of deliberately targeting civilians, with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy calling it “one of the most brazen terrorist acts in European history” in his evening broadcast posted on Telegram.
