A series of Russian missile attacks hit the Ukrainian capital KyivNews
“More of their barbarism.”
This is how US President Joe Biden described the latest Russian attack on Kyiv.
For the first time in about three weeks since early June, Russian airstrikes hit the Ukrainian capital on Sunday.
Officials say a series of missile attacks hit a residential building and kindergartens, leaving at least one dead and six injured.
“The building has been destroyed and we understand that there are people under the rubble. They are alive, the rescuers are trying to get them out, there is a lot of smoke and we are doing our best to rescue them as soon as possible. .”
Long-range Russian strikes over the weekend targeted places in northern and western Ukraine, such as Lviv, at a time when G7 and NATO summits are being held this week.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has called on his partners to step up efforts to provide Ukraine with a modern air defense system to deter Russian missiles.
“Some agreements are already in place. And partners need to act faster if they are truly partners, not observers. The procrastination with the transfer of weapons to our state, all the restrictions – this is in fact an invitation for Russia to fight again and again.”
He also added that it is a matter of determination for the G7 leaders who have enough common potential to stop the aggression, not only against Ukraine but against Europe as a whole.
CNN reports that the United States is already planning to announce as early as this week that it has purchased an advanced medium- and long-range surface-to-air missile defense system for Ukraine.
Currently, on the ground, the Russian offensive continues in eastern Ukraine.
After the key city of Severodonetsk came under complete Russian occupation, the town of Lysychansk in the Luhansk region became a target along with neighboring Donetsk where Russian forces gathered for further assaults.
