Russian Attack on Shopping Center Condemned as War Crime

Putin WAR CRIME Exposed – Damning Video Released!

( – Russia has been accused of war crimes after a missile hit a crowded shopping center, killing and wounding dozens of people. Dozens more are still missing in the wreckage of the mall.

On June 27, a Russian cruise missile slammed into the Amstor mall in Kremenchuk, a central Ukrainian city that’s become one of the latest targets of enemy attacks. The weapon, believed to be a Kh-22 anti-ship missile, demolished most of the mall and left at least 16 people dead. Another 59 were injured by the strike, and another 36 are still missing. Now, the hope of finding them alive is fading.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy condemned the attack on Monday night, calling it “one of the most brazen terrorist acts in European history.” Ukraine’s defense ministry says the 6-ton, Mach 4.6 missile was timed to hit when the mall was at its busiest, in a deliberate — and illegal — attack on civilians. Now, leaders of the G7 group of industrialized countries have joined the condemnation. A statement released Monday reminded Russia that deliberate attacks on civilians “contribute to a war crime” and warned that Russian leader Vladimir Putin and his government “will be held to account.”

Under the 1949 Geneva Conventions, deliberate attacks on civilians or their property are forbidden; any destruction of civilian property has to be justified by military necessity. It’s hard to see how firing a missile designed to sink aircraft carriers into a shopping mall meets that test.
