In a disturbing escalation of hostilities, Russia launched a barrage of 70 missiles and drone attacks on Ukraine overnight, as reported by Kyiv’s air force. President Volodymyr Zelensky condemned the attack on a blood-transfusion center in the country’s north-east, labeling it a “war crime.”
The devastating multi-wave assault comes at a critical time, as officials from around 40 countries gathered in Saudi Arabia to bolster support for a peace process in Ukraine. However, Russia was notably absent from the meeting, signaling a lack of diplomatic progress with the country involved in the conflict.
The intensity and scale of the attacks have sparked international concern and condemnation. With the strikes targeting essential civilian infrastructure like the blood transfusion center, there are growing fears of further escalation and humanitarian consequences.
Ukraine’s President, along with leaders from other nations, is calling for an immediate end to the violence and a renewed commitment to finding a peaceful resolution to the ongoing conflict.
The situation remains fluid, and the international community is closely monitoring developments in the region to prevent further escalation and promote lasting peace.
