“They wanted to kill as many people.”
According to the local authorities around 36 people are still missing.

UN political affairs chief Rosemary DiCarlo told the Security Council she had “run out” of words to describe the attack.
She said: “We have run out of words to describe the senselessness, futility and cruelty of this war.”
Moscow has claimed that its missiles struck a nearby arms depot containing Western weapons.
According to the Russian Defence Ministry, the depot exploded and caused the blaze that engulfed the nearby shopping centre.

Mr Zelensky has also branded Russian a “terrorist state” at the United Nations.
