Emergency crews searched for survivors in the rubble of a mall in central Ukraine that was pounded by Russian missiles, while the ambassador to Moscow of the separatist Luhansk People’s Republic said street battles had broken out in Lysychansk.

Russia steps up missile strikes on Ukraine

Fighting

  • A Russian missile struck a crowded shopping centre in the central city of Kremenchuk, killing at least 16 people and wounding 59.

  • Russian troops and their Luhansk Republic allies are advancing into Lysychansk and street battles have erupted, said the ambassador to Moscow of the Luhansk People’s Republic, recognised only by Russia. Reuters could not confirm Russian reports that Moscow’s troops had already entered the city.

  • Ukrainian forces still controlled Lysychansk but its loss was possible as Russia poured resources into the fight, Luhansk Governor Gaidai said.

  • Russia shelled Kharkiv, hitting apartment buildings and a primary school, the regional governor said. The shelling killed five people and wounded 22 including children.

Economy and diplomacy

  • The Group of Seven club of wealthy nations vowed to stand with Ukraine “for as long as it takes”, promising new sanctions.

  • The White House said Russia had defaulted on its foreign sovereign bonds for the first time in a century - an assertion Moscow rejected.

  • Ukrainian President Zelenskiy asked for more arms in a video address to the G7 leaders.

  • Zelenskiy was focused on securing an “advantageous position” in months rather than years, US National Security Adviser Sullivan said. A European official said the Ukrainian leader wanted the war to be over by winter.

  • US President Biden raised the tariff rate on certain Russian imports to 35% as a result of suspending Russia’s “most favoured nation” trading status.

Quotes

“It is impossible to even imagine the number of victims … It’s useless to hope for decency and humanity from Russia,” Zelenskiy wrote on Telegram after the Kremenchuk mall was hit.
