A video is going viral showing a Russian missile strike against a Ukrainian government building.
A missile strikes the Kharkiv Region state administration building on Freedom Square with civilian traffic in the area.
While reports are still coming in regarding injuries, some local reports have stated that at least one child was among the injured.
This most recent attack is believed to be part of Putin’s plan to “decapitate” the Ukrainian government.
Putin reportedly wants to “get rid” of all the top Ukraine officials to install a pro-Kremlin regime in the Ukraine government.
President Zelensky immediately called out Putin for the inexcusable strike, calling it a “war crime.”
He stated, “The strike against Kharkiv is a war crime.
“This is state terrorism on the part of Russia.
“No one will forgive. No one will ever forget.”
There were no military targets in the area and the fact the area clearly had significant civilian traffic has created global outrage over the attack.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba echoed Zelensky’s sentiment, stating, “Putin is unable to break Ukraine down.
“He commits more war crimes out of fury, murders innocent civilians.
“The world can and must do more. INCREASE PRESSURE, ISOLATE RUSSIA FULLY!”
According to the UN Human Rights office, 13 Ukrainian children have been killed so far during the conflict.
All told, 136 civilians have died so far.
Even with these atrocities, Zelensky remains defiant, vowing to hold Kyiv at all costs.
Time is running out, though, and something needs to be done now to choke Putin and end this horrific war against Ukraine.
