EU condemns Russia’s brutal shooting of civilians in Ukraine

BRUSSELS

European Union (EU) foreign policy chief Josep Borrell on Monday condemned Russia’s latest missile attack targeting Ukrainian civilians.

In a statement, Borrell said the European Union “condemns the continued indiscriminate and illegal shooting of civilians and civilian infrastructure by the Russian armed forces.”

He said east and south of Ukraine, including the region Luhansk and cities Severodonetsk, Lysychanskand Popasnahas faced a “very heavy attack” in recent days.

No part of the territory is spared from attack Kremlin senseless in the midst of indiscriminate attacks that cause great destruction to civilian life and infrastructure,” he said Borrell.

He repeated the EU’s call on Russia to immediately and unconditionally end the war and the bloc’s support for the International Criminal Court in investigating war crimes committed in Ukraine.

At least 2,072 civilians have been killed and 2,818 injured in Ukraine so far in the war, according to UN estimates, and the real figure is believed to be much higher.

More than 4.9 million Ukrainians have fled to other countries, with more than 7 million more internally displaced, the UN refugee agency says.
