DW News published this video item, entitled “Ukraine war: At least 18 people killed in shopping mall attack | DW News” – below is their description.

At least 18 people have now been confirmed dead as emergency workers continue to clear rubble at the Kremenchuk shopping center that was targeted by a Russian airstrike, said Dmytro Lunin, governor of the Poltava region where Kremenchuk is.

The head of Ukraine’s State Emergency Service, Sergiy Kruk, said on Telegram early on Tuesday that workers were still clearing debris from the site and extinguishing the remaining fires.

“All response groups are working in intense mode,” Kruk said. “The work will go on around the clock.”

World leaders sharply condemned the strike.

In a joint statement issued late on Monday night, the leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) nations described the strike as a “brutal” and “abominable” attack.

“Indiscriminate attacks on innocent civilians constitute a war crime. Russian President [Vladimir] Putin and those responsible will be held to account,” read a statement by leaders attending a G7 summit in southern Germany.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the world was “horrified” by the missile strike.

The office of UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres also said the attack on civilian infrastructure was “totally deplorable.”
