“Completely deliberate act of terror”:: Zelensky condemns attack on Kharkiv

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has strongly condemned the Russian attack on the village of Hroza in the Kharkiv Oblast, which resulted in the deaths of 51 people.

According to the Münchner Merkur, the Ukrainian President referred to it as a “demonstrably cruel Russian crime” and a “completely deliberate act of terror.” During a summit with other European heads of state and government, Zelenskyy stated that “Russian terror must be stopped.” He also called for further arms supplies to his country and emphasized the need for ongoing and comprehensive support for Ukraine. His country’s Defense Minister, Umerov, also used the attack as an opportunity to insist on more Western weapons. He wrote on the short messaging service X, formerly known as Twitter, that Ukraine needs more “air defense systems to protect our country from terror.”
