LIVE – War in Ukraine: Zelensky wants new European sanctions “faster”


The Russian strike which hit an apartment building in Kramatorsk killed two people and injured around 20 on Wednesday, according to a latest report. “At least eight apartment buildings were damaged, including one completely destroyed. People could be under the rubble,” Donetsk police said.

“More than a hundred police officers are at work at the scene of the attack,” she said. AFP journalists saw two bodies where relief workers were clearing the rubble. “Peaceful people are dead and lie under the rubble,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky wrote after the rocket fire.

“It’s the daily reality of life in our country. A country bordering on absolute evil,” he said. The city of Kramatorsk is located in the eastern region of Donetsk. Kremlin-backed separatists have partially controlled the industrial region since 2014, including its main city, Donetsk. After having decreed last year that the region was Russian, Moscow is currently trying to conquer it completely.
