“The evil state (of Russia) continues to fight with the civilian population. Destroying life and leaving nothing human,” said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

“Every blow that takes an innocent life must result in a lawful and just sentence of murder. This will definitely be so.”

Criminal proceedings have been initiated on the violation of the laws and customs of war (Part 2 of Article 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).
