Ukraine, civil convoy attacked in Kharkiv: 20 dead, 10 are children

Russian troops reportedly fired on a convoy of seven vehicles

10 children were killed yesterday in the attack by the Russian side on a civil convoy in the north-eastern region of Kharkiv, Ukraine. According to the Ukrainian Security Service, Russian troops fired on a convoy of seven vehicles, killing at least 20 people.

The attack took place in the so-called “gray zone” between the recently liberated city of Kupiansk and the still occupied Svatove in the Kharkiv region on the border with Luhansk, the Ukrainian Security Service said.

Interim Service Chief Vasyl Maliuk said that “the brutal attack on civilians was carried out by a sabotage and reconnaissance group. The enemy has shown once again that his goal is the destruction of all Ukrainians, regardless of age and gender “.

According to the head of the regional state administration of Kharkiv Oleh Synehubov, the Russians “attacked civilians who were trying to escape the bombings. This is a cruelty that has no justification”.
