Quote from Zelenskyy: “Mykolaiv. The terrorist state’s cynical response to our success on the front. A strike on a five-storey apartment building. Fifth to ground floors are destroyed. Unfortunately, there are casualties. Rescue and search operations are underway.
Russia continues with its vile methods. And we continue with our fight. The occupiers will be held responsible for every crime against Ukraine and Ukrainian people.”
