Missiles on a civilian building in Zaporizhzhia.  “Act of Terror”

The death toll in a Russian missile attack on an apartment building in the Ukrainian city of Zaporizhzhia left three dead. Police also confirmed that at least four other people were injured in the attack. Emergency services teams have so far rescued eleven people from part of the five-story building, which collapsed after the attack, and are continuing to excavate the rubble. Among the survivors, a pregnant woman. The attack echoed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s outraged words that the Russian attack on Zaporizhzhia was the act of a “terrorist state” that wants “terror” to reign. “The terrorist state wants every day to be a day of terror for our people – articulated Zelensky – But the devil will not reign in our land. We will evict all occupants and will no doubt be judged for their actions.”

Zelensky’s wife, Ukrainian First Lady Olena Zelenska, also intervened in the blitz: “Zaporizhzhia courageously resists the Russian aggressor, who attacks civilians in retaliation. A multi-storey building was deliberately hit last night: three floors were completely destroyed, people died. We continue the search under the rubble. My condolences to the victims. We will not forgive this,” he wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, according to Natalia Humeniuk, spokeswoman for Ukraine’s southern operational command, Moscow lacks the troops it needs to open a new front in its war against Ukraine in Transnistria, the pro-Russian breakaway region of Moldova. Despite fears of possible Russian plans for Moldova, Moscow, according to Humeniuk, cannot transport the amount of forces necessary to create problems for Ukraine starting from a new front, as this would have to cross Ukrainian or NATO airspace. And if a “desperate move” was made from that area, the forces controlling Ukraine’s borders would be tough enough to deal with it.
