Russia reportedly fired a cruise missile into Freedom Square in Kharkiv, Ukraine, on Tuesday.
Kharkiv, in eastern Ukraine, is the second-largest city in Ukraine. The blast detonated right in front of the headquarters of the Kharkiv Oblast government.
The bombing was captured on video.
President Zelensky described the attack in his speech to the EU Parliament this morning, “Evil, armed with rockets, bombs and artillery, must be stopped immediately. Destroyed economically. We must show that humanity is able to protect themselves. The rocket aimed at the central square of Kharkiv is an outright, undisguised terror. After that, Russia is a terrorist state. No one will forgive. No one will forget.”
Here is video of the aftermath of the missile strike in Kharkiv.
Russia is waging war in violation of international humanitarian law. Kills civilians, destroys civilian infrastructure. Russiaʼs main target is large cities that now fired at by its missiles.
