50 People Killed In Ukraine As Russian Bombs Grocery Store And Cafe

 At least 51 people were killed  Thursday, Oct. 5 in a Russian strike that hit a grocery store and café in the northeast Kharkiv region, Ukrainian officials said.

 President Volodymyr Zelenskyy condemned the “demonstrably brutal Russian crime,” calling it “a rocket attack on an ordinary grocery store.”

In a message shared on his Telegram channel, Zelenskyy called the recent attack a “terrorist attack” and vowed a “powerful” response as he sought European officials’ further support in Spain.

Ukraine’s Internal Affairs Minister Ihor Klymenko said 51 people were confirmed dead in the rubble of the building, which he said had about 60 people in it when the Russian rocket or missile struck.

“My condolences to all those who have lost their loved ones! Help is being provided to the wounded,” Zelenskyy said on his Telegram account. “Russian terror must be stopped. Anyone who helps Russia circumvent sanctions is a criminal.”

The governor of the Kharkiv region, Oleh Synehubov, said the building housed a café and shop in the village of Hroza, in Kharkiv’s Kupyansk district, and that the missile or shells hit at about 1:15 p.m. local time when the business was busy. A 6-year-old boy was said to be among the dead in the village, which had a population of only about 500 people before the war. Many have fled the war-torn region over the last year.

Zelenskyy vowed that Ukraine would “respond to the terrorists. Absolutely fair. And powerful.”
