COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says seven people were killed in a missile strike on the regional government headquarters in the southern city of Mykolayiv.
Zelensky, who spoke to the Danish parliament through a translator, says the strike also left 22 people injured. The Telegram channel of regional governor Vitaliy Kim showed a gaping hole in the center of the nine-story building.
Kim accused Russian forces of waiting until people had arrived for work in the building before striking it and said he had a lucky escape because he had overslept.
