Kiev kindergarten, apartment hit by Russian long-range missiles: Ukraine

Russian missiles rocked Kyiv on Sunday, hitting an apartment building and a kindergarten, according to Ukrainian officials, killing at least one person.

“The Russians hit Kyiv again. Rockets damaged an apartment building and a kindergarten. Russia should be declared a state sponsor of terrorism as soon as possible,” Andriy Yermak, head of the office of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, wrote on Twitter.

He added that the country “is in dire need of modern missile defense systems. We’re telling our allies. Guns save lives.”

Ukrainian police chief Ihor Klymenko said five other people were injured in the attacks, Reuters reported on Sunday.

According to Radio Free Europe, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko said a 7-year-old girl was pulled from the rubble of the hit nine-story apartment complex.

“She’s alive,” said the mayor. “Now they’re trying to save their mother.”

Meanwhile, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba tweeted on Sunday that the girl was “sleeping peacefully in Kyiv until a Russian cruise missile blew up her house.”

“Many more in Ukraine are being attacked. The G7 must respond with more sanctions against Russia and more heavy weapons for Ukraine. Russia’s sick imperialism must be defeated,” the foreign minister continued.

Reuters also reported that Russian missiles hit the city of Cherkasy, resulting in one death and five wounded. A bridge in the city was also hit.

Sunday’s attacks came as the Group of 7 (G7) countries – Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States – met in Germany to discuss pressing international issues. Speaking to reporters at the summit, President Joe Biden slammed the attacks, saying, according to Reuters, “It’s rather their barbarism.”

news week asked the Ukrainian and Russian foreign ministries for an opinion.

The US recently deployed High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) to Ukraine to help the nation counter Russian aggression. When the guns arrived last week, Ukraine warned its opponent.

On Saturday, Ukrainian officials reported Russia fired 48 cruise missiles at the country.

“Exclusively on civilian targets… Russia is still trying to intimidate Ukraine, cause panic and make people afraid of Z-monsters… Ukraine knows everything and is ready for anything. And she will punish for everything evil …” Mykhailo Podolyak, who is an adviser to Zelenskyy, tweeted on Saturday.

In addition, the main intelligence directorate of Ukraine’s defense ministry said Saturday that Russian bombers fired 12 missiles from Belarus, in what the ministry called an attempt to lure Russia’s loyal allies into the war.

“This is the first case of air strikes on Ukraine directly from the territory of Belarus. Today’s shelling is directly related to the efforts of the Kremlin authorities to draw Belarus into the war in Ukraine as a direct participant,” the ministry said.
