In Photos: Ukrainian Shopping Center Lies in Ruins Following Russian Missile Strike

A Russian missile struck a shopping center in Kremenchuk, central Ukraine on Monday, killing at least 20 people and injuring dozens more in what Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has blasted as a "brazen terrorist attack."

Russia maintains that the mall hadn’t been open during the strike and that its forces were targeting a nearby stockpile of Western-supplied weapons — a version of events that Ukraine denies.

Russia media is under attack.

At least 10 independent media outlets have been blocked or closed down over their coverage of the war in Ukraine.

The Moscow Times needs your help more than ever as we cover this devastating invasion and its sweeping impacts on Russian society.
