As the death toll grew to 13, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky condemned Monday’s missile attack on a retail mall in the central city of Kremenchuk as a “brazen terrorist act.”

Zelensky said amid reports of two more attacks in the country’s east on Monday that killed at least 12 civilians in total, as officials there accused Moscow of intentionally targeting civilians.

“The Russian strike today on the shopping centre in Kremenchuk is one of the most brazen terrorist acts in European history,”  Zelensky stated in his evening Telegram broadcast.

“A peaceful town, an ordinary shopping centrewomen, children, ordinary civilians inside.”

Earlier, Ukraine’s defence ministry said that the Kremenchuk attack was planned to happen during the mall’s busiest times in order to kill as many people as possible.

The incident has been condemned by the United Nations and world leaders.
