Putin’s massacre of the innocent…and message to Europe: Nearly 50 dead in Russian rocket attack on grocery store as Zelensky meets leaders to plead for more aid
Vladimir Putin’s troops killed nearly 50 Ukrainians as they shopped at a grocery store in a village in the eastern region of Kharkiv – the latest in a series of barbaric rocket attacks targeting innocent civilians.
The rocket attack decimated a cafe and shop mid-afternoon in the village of Hroza in the Kupyansk district of Kharkiv, which was then crowded with men, women and children.
The local governor said at least 49 people, including a six-year-old boy, were killed in today’s horrific attack. Harrowing images from the scene show the bodies of the victims lined up on the side of the road.
President Volodymyr Zelensky, who is meeting Western leaders including British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to plead for more aid, condemned Russia for the massacre.
“The brutal Russian crime of hitting an ordinary grocery store with a rocket is a completely deliberate terrorist attack. So far, more than 48 people have reportedly been killed,” Zelensky said in a statement on social media.
