Ukraine’s first lady slams Russia for attacking civilians in Zaporizhzhia

‘By killing civilians, Russia shows its weakness,’ Ukraine’s first lady says after Zaporizhzhia attack

These are the latest images coming out of Ukraine, where a residential area in Zaporizhzhia was hit by shelling.

So far, 13 people have been confirmed dead.

Ukrainian First Lady Olena Zelenska shared her thoughts on the attack in Zaporizhzhia.

She wrote on Twitter: “By killing civilians, Russia shows its weakness.

“There is no doubt.”

Meanwhile, the search and rescue operation continues at the scene of the attack.

The State Emergency Service of Ukraine says on Telegram that 20 units and 95 personnel are “carrying out emergency rescue operations, extinguishing fires and rescuing people”.

US will continue to provide Ukraine security assistance

The White House has declined comment on an explosion that damaged Russia’s road-and-rail bridge to Crimea but said it will continue to supply Ukraine with arms and that Russian President Vladimir Putin had started the war and could end it if he chose. 

“We don’t really have anything more to add to the reports about the explosion on the bridge. I just don’t have anything to contribute to that this morning,” White House national security spokesman John Kirby told ABC’s “This Week” program. 

“What I can tell you is that Mr. Putin started this war, and Mr. Putin could end it today, simply by moving his troops out of the country.”
