At least 11 dead as Russian missile hits shopping centre in Ukraine

A Russian missile strike has hit a crowded shopping centre in the city of Kremenchuk, killing at least 11 people and wounding 40.

Footage circulating on social media showed fire raging and smoke billowing from the shopping centre, with fire engines parked nearby.

The Ukrainian president wrote on Telegram that more than 1,000 civilians were inside the shopping centre in Kremenchuk and that the number of victims was “unimaginable”.

“The occupiers fired missiles at the shopping centre, where there were more than a thousand civilians. The mall is on fire, rescuers are extinguishing the fire, the number of victims is unimaginable. Russia continues to take out its impotence on ordinary citizens. It is useless to hope for decency and humanity from Russia”, - wrote Volodymyr Zelensky.
