Russia’s missile strike on Ukrainian mall kills at least 18; Authorities said 36 people were missing. The attack in the central city of Kremensuk has drawn worldwide condemnation. French President Emmanuel Macron called it a “war crime.”

Ukraine claims that Moscow deliberately killed civilians in Kremensk. Russia, however, said it had attacked a nearby arsenal and that the mall was empty.

The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a rally in the region’s main city of Dniebro. Government officials said they were working to rescue those trapped in the rubble.

Ukrainian officials say Russia has fired six missiles, three of which were shot down, destroying railway infrastructure and a business, and burning a service company.

Earlier in the day, at the G7 summit in Germany, leaders of industrialized democracies announced plans for a price cap on Russian oil. It is designed not to aggravate the global energy crisis and to disrupt Russia’s war operations.

The next NATO summit will be held in Spain, in which hundreds of thousands of troops in the Western military alliance are on high alert and are expected to change its strategic structure and declare Moscow an adversary.

Also, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Tuesday that Turkey had agreed to support Finland and Sweden joining NATO.

Relatives of those who went missing in the attack on a shopping mall in Russia lined up at a hotel opposite the ruins of a shopping center, with adults and children, some in tears, lighting candles and paying tribute to the dead with flowers.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zhelensky has accused Russia of deliberately targeting civilians, calling it “one of the worst terrorist attacks in European history.”

However, Russia’s Defense Ministry said it had attacked a nearby warehouse where Western countries were stockpiling weapons, and that the blaze had spread to a nearby business complex. Also, the shopping center was described as empty without being used.

G7 leaders said the attack was “disgusting”. They demanded the arrest of Russian President Vladimir Putin and those responsible.
