Pavlograd Blitz


By firing rockets at Ukrainian civilians, Russia shows its total unwillingness to stop its brutal war

On the night of 1 May, the Russians staged another massive rocket attack on Ukrainian cities. One of the targets was the city of Pavlograd and the Pavlograd district of the Dnipropetrovsk region, where Russian rockets damaged 19 apartment buildings, 25 private houses, 6 schools and kindergartens, and 5 shops. According to preliminary information, more than 30 people, including children, were injured as a result of the attack.

Russia attacked Ukraine from strategic aircraft - nine Tu-95s from the Olenogorsk area (Murmansk Region) and two Tu-160s from the Caspian Sea area. A total of 18 air-launched X-101/X-555 cruise missiles were fired. The Russians enter the target coordinates in these types of missiles in advance, which indicates that they deliberately targeted residential buildings in a missile attack, demonstrating the impunity off the attackers and their terrorist nature. They continue to kill entire Ukrainian families and destroy homes. Every day Russians commit crimes in frontline cities, in the occupied territories, and all over Ukraine.

The Russian Federation's goal remains unchanged - the destruction of Ukraine. Kyiv must not negotiate with Moscow until it stops firing missiles at peaceful Ukrainian cities and withdraws its troops completely from all internationally recognised Ukrainian territories. The only way to peace is to supply the Ukrainian army with weapons, which will undermine the combat efficiency of the Russian army.

During Russia's all out war against Ukraine, thousands of war crimes have been recorded; those responsible must be held to account and tried at an international tribunal. If the Russian Federation is not stopped soon, the Russian army's war crimes will number in the tens of thousands, not thousands.
