A spokesman for the Ukrainian Defense Ministry said on Friday that, according to government statistics, 70% of the missiles launched by Russia are directed against “peaceful targets.”
Oleksandr Motuzyanyk pointed out, in statements to Ukrainian television, that only 30% of Russian attacks are aimed at military targets, while the rest are directed “deliberately” against civilian infrastructure.
“Yesterday’s criminal missile attack on a peaceful city center in Ukraine is yet another proof of Russia’s fully proven genocide against Ukraine,” the spokesman said.
By this he was referring to the attack on Thursday against the city of Vinnytsia, in the center of the country, in which, according to the Ukrainian authorities, at least 23 people died, of which three were children, and more than a hundred were injured.
Motuzyanyk alluded to similar attacks on cities such as Mariupol, Zaporizhia and Mykolaiv in southern Ukraine, in which large numbers of civilians were killed.
“Russia should be recognized as a terrorist state,” the spokesman stressed.
He indicated that the only way to put an end to these aggressions is military means, through the destruction of enemy missiles, for which modern anti-aircraft defense systems are necessary.
Moscow claims that the target of yesterday’s attack in Vinnytsia was a military facility where a meeting of the Ukrainian Air Force command with foreign arms suppliers was taking place.
