The terror of Vladimir Putin firing missiles on innocent civilians is on vivid display in these new videos showing the shopping mall Russia just destroyed.
Monday’s missile strike in the central Ukrainian city of Kremenchuk destroyed the mall, sending fireballs into the sky and unleashing a shockwave on a nearby park. In the video, you can see citizens strolling peacefully when suddenly they have to run for their lives.
Some people took cover behind trees, while others jumped into a pond seeking cover from shrapnel and rocks that were sent flying. A massive piece of concrete from a building landed in the park, but luckily it didn’t hit anyone.
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said there were more than 1,000 people in the mall at the time of the strike — and the latest death toll stands at 18, with nearly 60 injured and another 36 people still missing.
As rescuers continue digging through the rubble, President Zelensky is labeling the missile strike “one of the most defiant terrorist attacks in European history.”
He’s also calling out the barbarism of Putin obliterating non-military targets — “Only totally insane terrorists, who should have no place on Earth, can strike missiles at such an object. And, this is not an off-target missile strike, this is a calculated Russian strike — exactly at this shopping mall.”
