On June 27, local time, Ukraine's emergency services said that a Russian missile attacked a shopping center in Kremenchug, Poltava, Ukraine, killing at least 16 people.

  According to reports, Sergiy Kruk, head of Ukraine's emergency services, said, "As of now, we know that 16 people were killed, 59 were injured, and 25 were hospitalized."

  Crook also said that the main task of the department at present is "rescue work, debris removal and fire fighting".

  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said there were more than 1,000 people in the mall at the time of the incident, and the number of casualties would be "unimaginable."

He added that there was a fire in the mall and rescuers were fighting the fire.

  Danilov, secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, said on the same day that according to preliminary data, Russia hit Kremenchug with two missiles, one of which hit the shopping center and the other hit the city’s stadium.

  So far, the Russian official has not responded to the incident.

  However, the Russian media "Russia Today" (RT) questioned a series of words from the Ukrainian side.

  Video from the scene showed dozens of men, some in military uniforms, walking in an empty parking lot outside the burning building, the report said.

"If there are really 1,000 people in the building, why are there so few cars (in the parking lot)?"

  The report also said that, in fact, the shopping center is next to a factory that produces and repairs heavy machinery and a train station, which was involved in the repair and refurbishment of military armored vehicles.
