“Russian occupiers launched missile strikes on a shopping mall with over 1,000 civilians inside. The shopping mall is on fire. Rescuers are extinguishing fire. It is impossible even to imagine the number of victims,” Zelensky wrote.

The President of Ukraine stressed that this facility posed no threat to the Russian army.
“No strategic value. Just the attempt of people to live a normal life, which angers the occupiers so much. Russia continues to displace its powerlessness on ordinary citizens. It is useless to hope for its adequacy and humanity,” Zelensky added.

Earlier, Kremenchuk Mayor Vitalii Maletskyi reported that the Russian missile hit a crowded place. mkhttps://www.ukrinform.net/rubric-ato/3516430-russian-missiles-hit-shopping-mall-in-kremenchuk.html

The bombers took off from Shaykovka air base (Kaluga region in Russia), missiles launched from the Kursk region.

Kh-22 Burya is Soviet supersonic cruise long-range anti-ship missile. It is part of the K-22 aircraft missile system. Intended for the destruction of radar-contrast point and group targets.

The day before, the Air Force Command noted that the Kh-22, Oniks, and Iskander missiles are extremely difficult targets for current Ukrainian air defense systems. https://mil.in.ua/en/news/russia-resumes-iskander-launches-from-belarus-uses-tu-22m3-bombers-air-force-command/

After all, the speed of Oniks and Kh-22 missiles is over 3,000 km per hour. Iskander missiles fly on a ballistic trajectory. Their defeat is an unusual and difficult task for the air defense facilities available in Ukraine.

As previously reported, White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan confirmed that this week the transfer of air defense systems to Ukraine will happen. https://mil.in.ua/en/news/biden-s-adviser-confirms-information-on-upcoming-air-defense-systems-for-ukraine/.
