Ukraine: Russian state television discusses rocket attack on shopping center

After Vladimir Putin’s horrific rocket attack on a Ukrainian shopping mall, people have posted the names and pictures of their missing loved ones.

The latest death toll in Kremenchuk has risen to 18, with 36 missing and 59 seeking medical attention, including 25 who were hospitalized after Russian bombers attacked.

Russia has repeatedly raised allegations that the Kremenchuk horror was staged by him Ukraine , possibly with Western help, to pressure NATO to speed up arms shipments. They also took this line after the atrocities in Bucha.

Among those reported missing in the vandalization is Tatyana Brigadirenko, who worked at the Amstor shopping center.

Alyona Velichko, 44, met a friend in Amstor and is still missing, relatives have not been able to contact her.

“I understand your concern, but I’m not made of steel. Thanks again.”

Other feared victims were Amstor shopping center worker Sergey Markovich, who was born in 1983, and shoppers Vyacheslav Demidov (23) and Ruslan Mykolenko (26).

Russian state television propaganda Vladimir Solovyov openly claimed that the chaos at the mall was orchestrated by Ukraine, claiming that a lack of cars at the mall indicates it was almost empty at the time of the alleged missile attack.

“Ukrainians do the same trick as they always do when they need extra ones [military] Help,” he said on the Rossiya 1 channel.

“They start screaming – they used to have Bucha, now they have Kremenchuk.

“Supposedly a mall. There are said to be many dead, although for some reason there were few cars [in the car park].

“And there were almost 1,000 [dead]. Then they talked about 100 [dead]. There are no photos. Everything is the same as always.”

Earlier, Russia claimed that Ukrainian and Western allegations of rapes and massacres in Bucha were a stunt to make Putin’s troops appear barbaric.

This has been largely disproved by satellite and first hand evidence.

The Legitimny Telegram channel also published its version of events.

It said: “Numerous videos show that the Amstor shopping center in Kremenchuk is trapped Fire from the effects of a nearby explosion at a plant and was not hit by a rocket attack.

“The cause of the tragedy was the proximity of the shopping center to the facility where equipment was repaired.

“Experts assume that in the event of a missile attack, nothing would have been left of the Mall.

“The videos did not show the remains of a missile, nor did they show the exact location of the impact that would stand out against the background of the fire.”

Another channel, War With Fakes, claimed that the Amstor shopping center “was used as a warehouse for storing military equipment.”

“It doesn’t look like the mall was open at all,” the report said.

American President Joe Biden condemned the attack, saying: “Russia’s attack on civilians in a shopping center is cruel. We stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian people.”

He tweeted: “We could have turned a blind eye to Putin’s barbaric war on Ukraine and gas prices wouldn’t have gone up as much as they did, but America is up right now.

“We proudly stand with Ukraine.”

Regional governor Dmytro Lunin condemned the attack as a “war crime” and “crime against humanity”.

It was a “cynical act of terrorism against the civilian population”.
