He assured that all victims are being provided with the necessary assistance. However, he added that the number of victims of Russia's crime may not be final.

"Five people were rescued. We know that there may still be children under the rubble. The search operations will continue until the fate of everyone who was in the house is clarified," Zelensky emphasized.

He once again thanked everyone who is clearing the rubble and helping the victims physically and psychologically.

"I thank everyone who is involved in the rescue operation, who supports people, who helps the wounded. And I thank each and every one who is destroying the occupiers, Russian equipment and logistics. Every Russian loss at the front is our country's response to Russian terror. The world must respond to every manifestation of Russian evil and repel Russia's actions. Every Russian terrorist act ignored by the world allows Russia to continue killing. We must win this war. Only Ukrainian power will be able to provide Ukrainians with a normal life," the President summarized.
