Even in times of war, we expect humane treatment of civilians.
For Russia, that idea has long since passed.
On Monday, reports surfaced that a mall in Ukraine was targeted by a missile strike.
So far, there have been 13 fatalities reported, a number that could still climb considerably.
This was a blatant attack against a civilian target… no ifs, ands, or buts.
With today’s weaponry, you do not hit a shopping mall unless that was your intention.
Clearly, that was the intention here…
After the attack happened, Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky stated, “The invaders hit the mall where there were more than 1,000 civilians … the number of victims cannot even be imagined.
“(It) posed no danger to the Russian army, not a single strategic value.”
At last report, over 100 first responders were on the scene trying to go through the rubble to locate survivors.
With an estimated 1,000 people in the mall at the time of the attack, this could be a horrific body count.
I have asked this before… how much longer can the world sit back and allow Putin to carry out these atrocities?
