"Seven people, including two children, were killed by a Russian missile strike in Zaporizhzhia region. My condolences to all those who lost their loved ones. As of now, we know about eleven wounded, three of them are children. All services are on the ground and will help as much as possible. Unfortunately, the number of victims may still increase," he said.

The Head of State emphasized that our cities and communities suffer from such Russian strikes every day .

Prosecutor General Andriy Kostin clarified that the enemy fired two missiles.

"This is a war crime. Prosecutors and law enforcement officers are working on the spot. Russian war criminals will be punished. The only effective way to stop the aggressor is to strengthen Ukraine's defense with weapons and air defense. Russia is a terrorist country that understands force only. A strong Ukrainian army means protection from such crimes not only for Ukraine but for the entire civilized world," he emphasized.

Emergency services and law enforcement officers are working at the scene to record another war crime committed by the Russian Federation. A pre-trial investigation into the violation of the laws and customs of war combined with premeditated murder (Part 2 of Article 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine) has been initiated.
