Russia’s Missile Attack Kills A Child, 6 Others

Russian war on Ukraine knows no limit as their latest missile attack killed seven people, including a 6-year-old girl. 

The attack in Chernihiv happened as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy arrived in Sweden on his first foreign trip since attending a NATO summit in Lithuania. 

According to Ukraine’s Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko, 15 children were among the 129 wounded. 

Following the strike, debris from the theater roof littered the square, along with shattered glass from the windows of nearby cars and restaurants.

Speaking about the attack from Russia, Zelenskyy wrote on his Telegram: 

“A Russian missile hit right in the center of the city, in our Chernihiv. A square, a polytechnic university, and a theater. An ordinary Saturday, which Russia turned into a day of pain and loss.”

Zelenskyy arrived in Sweden on an unannounced visit Saturday, as the war with Russia made the Scandinavian country ease its longstanding approach of military nonalignment to support Ukraine with weapons. 

Saturday night, Ukraine’s air force said it shot down 15 out of 17 Russian drones targeting northern, central and western regions.

The deputy governor of the western Khmelnytskyi region, Serhii Tiurin, said two people were wounded and dozens of buildings were damaged.
