Russian forces have attacked on Monday afternoon in the Ukrainian town of Kremenchuk a shopping center in which, according to the President of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenski, there were more than a thousand people, which would anticipate a high number of casualties.
Zelenski has reported on Telegram that the center was hit by several missiles and, as a consequence, a fire has broken out. The president has disseminated images of the facility in flames and with heavy smoke as an example of the destruction.
