A Russian missile strike killed at least 10 people and wounded more than 40 others at a mall in Ukraine on Monday, a regional governor said, warning that the toll could rise.
"Ten dead and more than 40 people have been injured. This is currently the situation in Kremenchuk as a result of the missile strike," said Dmytro Lunin, head of the administration of Poltava, AFP reports.
The Ukrainian president's deputy chief of staff, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, said on Telegram that there were around 20 wounded so far, with nine in "serious condition".
"Two people died. The rescue operation continues," Tymoshenko added.
Poltava region governor Dmytro Lunin denounced the attack as a "war crime" and "crime against humanity", saying it was a "cynical act of terror against the civilian population".
