Ukraine accuses Russia of ‘savagery’ as strikes kill at least eight people

Ukraine has accused Russia of “bestial savagery” after drone and missile strikes killed at least eight people and injured about 40 others, as Chinese president Xi Jinping ended a three-day state visit to Moscow that strengthened his ties with the Kremlin.

Seven people were killed and nine treated in hospital after explosive “suicide” drones slammed into a college dormitory in the town of Rzhyshchiv, south of Kyiv, early on Wednesday. Hours later, a Russian missile hit an apartment block in the southeastern city of Zaporizhzhia, killing at least one person and injuring 32 more.

“Russia is shelling [Zaporizhzhia] with bestial savagery ... The terrorist state seeks to destroy our cities, our state, our people,” Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy wrote on social media alongside footage of the rocket slamming into the apartment block.

Zaporizhzhia. Right now, residential areas where ordinary people and children live are being fired at.
