Civilians were killed and wounded by missile strikes... and Kiev accuses Moscow

Ukraine blamed Russia on Friday for targeting a humanitarian convoy in the partly Russian-controlled Zaporizhia region, killing 23 civilians who were waiting for humanitarian assistance.


"The enemy launched a missile attack on a humanitarian convoy of civilians, people were queuing to go to the occupied area temporarily to go and see their relatives and receive help," the Ukrainian regional governor, Oleksandr Staruch, said on Telegram.


"Those who were in the convoy planned to travel to Russian-occupied territories to pick up their relatives and then take them to safety," Staruch added, noting that rescuers were at the scene of the attack.
